WITH MY HEART'S FOND LOVE. I DEDICATE THIS BOOK 
TO MY .LITTLE DAUGHTER 

HELEN FITCH WHITTELSEY 

WHO INSPIRED ME TO UNDERTAKE THIS WORK 



PREFACE. 



Upon the issue of this Genealogy I take pleasure in present- 
ing to my readers a history of John and Ruth (Dudley) VVhit- 
telsey and their descendants, whose sons tilled the soil, fought 
for their country and honor, and served each in their vocation 
with " courage and faith " ; while the daughters passed through 
life developing the most beautiful characters that could be 
bestowed on a daughter, wife, or mother — all imbued with the 
principles of their father and mother on the subject of duty; a 
higher sentiment than ambition, and of more public value than 
gain. 

Special stress is laid on their faithful performance of duty, 
as it constitutes the leading characteristic of the family. 

While none of these descendants have become famously rich 
many have retired from business on a comfortable income, and 
honor added to their name, which was of priceless value. 

The "Whittlesey Memorials," published in 1855, was the 
foundation on which this work was started. The great amount 
of labor expended in compiling that little volume has been 
greatly appreciated in this, its revision and completion. 

The ancestral lines and all records herein given have been 
taken from the most reliable authorities available. 

The military records have been procured from the United 
States Government, the adjutant-generals of the different 
States, and the soldiers' respective families. 

In the compilation of this work, the support and valuable 
assistance of many who are interested has been greatly appre- 
ciated, and to them I wish to express my deepest gratitude, 
especially to :

Only sixteen months have elapsed during the compilation of 
this work, in which time I have received over three thousand 
letters and have written more than twice that number. 

In concluding, I solicit corrections and additions. Owing 
to the limited number of subscriptions received, have decided to 
have a few extra copies of the book on hand, which may be 
procured from 

Yours very truly,

" Heraldry has been denned as "The Shorthand of History," 
and the definition is a very happy one. In the early days when 
the forms used were few and simple, each man selected what he 
chose, and no general record was made." [History, Principles, 
and Practice of Heraldry. — F. E. Hulme, F.L.S., E.S.A.] 

The history of the Coat of Arms given in this work is brief. 
John Tully Whittlesey brought it into this country early in the 
century, after expending much time and money in finding it. 
The original has been handed down in the family until it is now 
owned by Mrs. J. R. Coultier, Chicago, 111., 1047. At one 
time it was loaned, and by some accident the " key " was lost ; 
in consequence we are deprived of very valuable information 
relative to the same. The original painting itself is about 9x12 
inches in size, in a good state of preservation in 1898, of which 
the following is an explanation in detail : 

Azure : " A beautiful color of ultra marine." " Which Blew 
coulor representeth the Aire amongst the elements, that of all 
the rest is the greatest fauorer of life, as the only nurse and 
maintainer of vital! spirits in any living creature." [The 
Blazon of Gentrie. — John Feme, London, 1586.] 

" The cullor of blew is commonly taken for the cleere sky, 
which appeareth so after the tempests be overblowne, and note 
prosperous success and good fortune to wearer in all his affavres. 
Azure of Arabic lazur, denoting Justice. Often referred to in 
old books as caeruleus, cyaneus, and caesam." [Accens of 
Armorie. — Gerard Legh, 1562.] 

Ermine: " Black spots or tails on white ground. The 
ermine as an unsullied purity, figures in the middle ages. In a 
portrait of Queen Elizabeth at Hatfield, an ermine is represented 
as running up her arm, as a delicate compliment to the royal 
lady. It was an old belief that the ermine would rather die than 
soil its fur. Hence the use of ermine for the nobility of 
the nation, a symbol of the purity and stainless honor that should 
be conspicuous in its wearers. Given to a judge, or denoting 
judicial power." [Encyclopedia Heraldica.] 

" The F^scallop Shell was the Pilgrims' ensign in their expe- 
ditions and pilgrimages to the holy places ; also a symbol of the 
Apostle St. James. They were worn on their hoods and hats, 
and were of such a distinguishing character that Pope Alexan- 
der the IV., by a bull, forbade the use of them but to pilgrims 
who were truly noble." " The influence of the Crusaders may 



g WHITTLESEY GENEALOGY. 

be seen by the escallop shell in some recognized positive order, 
so as to distinguish from those bearing similar arms." [Clark's 
Heraldry. — H. Clark, London.] 

Or. " " Gold. It doth lively represent that most excellent 
metal, the possession whereof enchanteth the hearts of fools 
and the colour whereof blindeth the eyes of the wise. Such is 
the worthiness of this colour that none shall bear the same but 
such as be of Royal Blood." [Force.] 

The Esquire's Helmet is represented as of steel, the visor 
being closed, the helmet placed in profile. " Esquire, a title of 
Gentleman, the rank immediately below a Knight, originally a 
military office. Constituted by receiving a collar." [Glossary 
of Terms Used in Heraldry. Jas. Parker, London, 1894.] 

" Wherever the helmet is introduced the crest of the bearer 
is placed upon it." " Every British gentleman entitled to bear 
coat armour is noble, whether titled or not." [Lord Lindsay's 
Life of the Lindsays.] 

The Lion, Rampant. " The King of beasts, so that by 
the Lion is signified principallitie, dominion and rule; forti- 
tude and magnanimity is denoted. Chosen to represent the 
greatest heroes, and who have been endued with such like 
qualities. This noble creature also represents command, sub- 
duing those that resist, and sparing those that humble them- 
selv< 

"The Lion on English arms is Golden." 

The late Col. Charles C. Whittelsey in his notes says " The 
Whittelsey seal is a shield, two of the quarterings the lower, 
being Bishop's miters : the upper left hand one a Maltese cross, 
the upper right hand one a sun-burst. The upper quarterings 
refer to the Crusaders, the lower half belongs to the Bishop of 
Rochester, Peterborough, and Canterbury." " The crest of the 
shield is a Maltese cross, with the motto, 'Animum Rege ' 
(The Kingdom of the Mind). 

"The arms of the Archbishop Whittlesey of Canterbury 
were ' Or : a saltire azure.' " — [Hasted's History of Canterbury, 

1 799-] 

" The seal of the Archbishop Whittlesey appended to one 

of the 'Charter Antique," in the library of the Dean and Chap- 
ter at Canterbury. Seal four inches by two, showing the Arch- 
bishop standing, mitred, robed, pall, blessing a cross in his left 
hand. Above gothic arches. In the upper one God the Father 
holding a crucifix, on each side the archbishop, a shield with the 
arms of the See." [S. D. Kershaw, M.A., Correspondence, 
1897. Lambeth Palace Library. |

bridgeshire, England, on the Whittlesea Fens, at no

WHITTLESEY GENEALOGY. 9 

Ge.1'1 Lord Na- ] ater j^e than the tenth century. In the year of

1 187 Wm. Whittlesey led a forlorn hope at the siege 
Macbonaki S ' °^ Acre. He followed his king in the vain hopes of 
rescuing our Saviour's tomb from the Jews. He 
was one of about fifty men who withstood the famine of fire and 
water, and returned to England with the king by whom he was 
knighted in 1 190. He fell at the battle of Malta in 1 192. 

Cambridgeshire was the birthplace of the English and Ameri- 
can families of Whittleseys, and there are now many families of 
the name living in this time-honored county. 

The following is a most interesting picture and account of 
" The Church of Colne " in Somersham, St. Ives, Hunts, which 
was the place of worship of our English ancestors for four hun- 
dred years previous to the seventeenth century. 

"The interesting old church of Colne, which is situated about 
half a mile out of the village, was reduced to a condition of ruin 
on Friday morning, April 24, 1896, by the falling of the tower. The 
disaster occurred about eight o'clock, and the noise quite startled 
and mystified the inhabitants of the peaceful little village, who 
were soon abroad making anxious inquiries. A youth named 
William Darwood, employed as farm laborer by Mr. H. Kisby, 
was in a field near the church, with two farm horses, at the time 
the tower fell, and had great difficulty in controlling the frightened 
animals, one of which trod upon one of his feet and caused him 
considerable pain. Darwood conveyed information of the occur- 
rence to the villagers, and a large crowd soon assembled. It was 
found that part of the tower had fallen outside, the other portion 
falling inside. The roof and pillars of the nave fell in two sections 
during the day, one side about two o'clock, when the Rev. F. C. 
Boultbee, the curate in charge, was in the chancel, and the other 
about six o'clock. Only the chancel, the little entrance porch, and 
part of the four outer walls remain standing. The Rev F. C. 
Boultbee, with the assistance of Messrs. T. Darwood, C. Chandler, 
R. Gray, and others, entered the east end of the church, in great 
danger of their lives, and pluckily took the organ to pieces and 
carried it outside. With the exception of some of the woodwork, 
which had to be broken away in order to get through the door, it 
was not damaged, and was subsequently removed to the school- 
room. In the interior of the church everything was demolished, 
including a magnificent coat of arms of the reign of James, which 
was presented to the church seventy-five years ago by Mr. Stokeley 
Hutchinson, and was hanging over the western arch. For a con- 
siderable number of years past the building has been gradually 
decaying, and the present curate, the Rev. F. C. Boultbee, upon 
his coming to the village six years ago, seeing that the church 
was then too far gone to be repaired, started a fund for the pur- 
pose of building a new church in the center of the village. 

The church, perhaps originally in form like Somersham church, 
was dedicated to St. Helen, and appears to have been erected 
about the time of Henry III, 1216-72. It consisted of a chancel. 



IO WHITTLESEY GENEALOGY. 

nave, aisles, south porch, and a low embattled tower, containing 
four bells, bearing the following inscriptions : 
(i) " fno. Draper made me, 1607." 

(2) "Jno. Draper made me, 1607." 

(3) " Miles Graye made me, 1674." 

(4) "Charles Newman made me, 1780." 

The three latter, which were lowered a year ago, are buried 
among the ruins, and the remaining one fell with the tower and 
is uninjured. There was sitting accommodation for 200 people. 
The register dates from the year 1665. 

The church land consists of nine acres, the rent of which is 
applied to the repairs and service of the church. The organ, 
which is said to have belonged to Lady Olivia Sparrow, though it 
has been in use in the church for many years, was only four years 
ago formally presented by the Bishop of Durham. Undoubtedly 
there was a church near the spot before the existence of the now 
ruined building, as there are one or two Saxon curved stones built 
into the church. The headstone of the piscina in the chancel was 
originally the lower stone of a Saxon piscina. A new roof was 
placed on the church in 1807. On the south wall is the only mon- 
ument existing in the church, bearing the following inscription : 
" Here lyeth interred the body of Charles Wandisford, sone of Sir 
Christopher Wandisford, baronet of Kirkelington, in the County of 
Yurke, he dyed 23rd day of December, 1693, aged 24 years." In 
connection with this, the following curious and interesting entry 
is to be found in the parish register : " Mr. Charles Wandisford, 
sone of Sir Christopher Wandisford, in Yorkshire, a clergyman, 
tabled at Mr. Richard Carter's, died ye 23 of December, was 
interred ye 25th, and solemnly buried the 7th January, 169^." 
Two explanations have been given of the quaint entry : First, that 
the body was put into the ground, and the funeral service delayed 
until the 7th of January, so as to give the relatives in Yorkshire 
time to be present. The other is that in those times there was 
no resident clergyman, and the interval between December 23d 
and January 7th was caused through there being no one to per- 
form the service. It must, however, be borne in mind that 
Christmas Day intervened, and it is scarcely possible that the day 
passed without a service. The word "tabled "in the entry is sug- 
gested to mean "boarded." 

The following records have been extracted from Cambridge- 
shire Church and Court Registers :

From the recent discoveries made the age of names now- 
used as Whittlesey, Whittelsey are so ancient that it is impos- 
sible to find their origin. The following are interesting and 
valuable records relative thereto : 

" Whittlesea Mere covers 1,570 acres. It is no modern creation 
for we find it granted in 664 by Wolphen, King of Mercia, to his 
new Monastery of ' Mede Hampstead ' (Peterborough) destroyed 
by the Danes in 876." [Edinborough Review, 1848.] 

"Whittlesey, Whittlesea, a decaying village and market town in 
Cambridgeshire, five miles east of Peterborough. The population 
in and about mostly employed in agricultural pursuits and in brick 
making." [Chambers' Cyclopedia.] 

" Whittlesea mere, a shallow lake, which formerly existed in the 
north of Huntingtonshire, four miles southwest of Whittlesea, was 
two miles in length by one mile in breadth, and abounded in fish, 
water fowl, and etc.: is now drained and laid out in fenlands which 
are under cultivation. Whittlesea is connected with a branch 
with the Great Northern and Great Eastern Railways. Population 
in 1851, 5,472; in 1861, 4,496. Older authority says Whittlesea 
was until 1780 a market town in the northwest part of the shire, a 
parish and a polling precinct, with a population in 1830 of 6,019." 

"'Cambridgeshire,' 'Cambridge,' the capital and seat of the 
university, forty-nine miles north of London. The north part of 
the shire is a vast marsh or ' mere ' on a level with the ' North 
Sea,' with coarse grass and bogs. It is partially reclaimed by 
ditches and canals, one of which is called ' Bedford Canal.' Here 
and there are dry knolls called 'eyes,' or islands, of solid land, on 
which are hamlets and churches. For natural drainage there are 
three sluggish streams, the ' Ouse,' the 'New,' and the 'Com,' 
which discharge into the 'Swash.' There are three hamlets on the 
'eye' known as 'Thomsey,' 'Ramsey,' and 'Whittlsey.' There is 
also on the 'Com,' the eastern boundary of the shire, a 'Whittles- 
ford.'" [Penny Cyclopedia, "Cambridgeshire," p. 179.] 

In the Term Reports, Vol. iv, p. 207, there is a reported 
case of the King against the inhabitants of " Whittlesea." 

'"Whittlesea mere ' is an extensive piece of water about five 
miles in length, between tw T o and three miles in breadth. This 
clear lake, says 'Camden,' extends itself in a very funny part of 
the country ; but the inhabitants reckon that the thickness of the 
are is compensated by the advantages of the fishery, the plentiful 
pasturage, and the quantity of turf so fit for firing. King Comute 
ordered the fen to be parceled out among the several towns upon 
it, by Turkell, who lived here among the East Angles, and invited 
over Suene, King of Denmark, to ravage England. He divided it

in such a manner that each town had such a proportion of the fen 
for his own use as each town had firm land abutting on the oppo- 
site fen. He also ordained that no township should dig or mow 
without leave in the fen belonging to another, and that they 
should all have a common right of pasturage. That is, horn under 
horn, in order to maintain peace and harmony among them. This 
mere is occasionally agitated with wind in a violent manner. 
Holland says, ' It doth sometimes in calms and faire weather 
sodainly rise tempestuously, ast it were, into violent water quakes, 
to the danger of the poore fishermen, by reason, as some thinke, of 
evaporations breaking violently out of the bowels of the earthe.' " 
[Brayley's Huntingtonshire.] 

In Feb., 1739-40 this mere was so frozen over that two 
prizes were run for on it.

"Whittlesea Dyke. Whittlesea Field. Whittlesea Mere, Hunt- 
ingtonshire, the largest inland lal^e in England, was drained by 
order of King Alfred the Great." [Cassell's British Atlas, No. -13.] 

Whittlesea adds " Rex " in East Riding, and spells the final 
syllable " sea.'.' 

In a description of the queen's tour some years ago the 
Whittlesea yeomanry of Cambridgeshire attended the queen. 
They also appeared in London upon the occasion of the queen's 
coronation, and of the queen's marriage, in the uniform worn at 
the time of the Crusaders, carrying their pikes, halberds, and 
tattered banners. 

At midwinter in the year 1085 at Glouchester, William the 
Conqueror "charged the Barons, Legates, and Justices with the 
duty of collecting from the verdicts of the shires, the 'hun- 
dreds ' and ' vills,' a description of his new real." The outcome 
of which was the description preserved in two MS. volumes 
called "The Doomsday Book," in which we find relative to 
" Cambridgeshire " and " Whittlesford " :

JOHN AND RUTH DUDLEY WHITTLESEY 

AND THEIR 

DESCENDANTS. 

From the Hartford Courant, relative to the first Whittlesey 
meeting in 1855. 

The Whittlesey Association, consisting of the descendants of 
John Whittlesey of Saybrook, assembled on the 20th inst., to the 
number of about one hundred, at the house of Capt. Azariah Whit- 
tlesey, who resides at the ferry where said John built his house 
200 years since. Persons were present from 11 towns in Connecti- 
cut,' from New York, Brooklyn, and Brunswick, from Washington, 
D. C, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and Iowa. The attention of the guests 
was first invited to the sumptuous dinner provided by the friends at 
Saybrook, after which, at 3 o'clock p. m., we were requested to 
repair to the elegant steam ferryboat of which Capt. Whittlesey is 
commander. Here the secretary called the meeting to order, and 
Charles Whittlesey, Esq., of New York, was appointed chairman. 
The meeting was opened with the reading of the Scriptures and 
prayer by Rev. Wm. Whittlesey of New Britain. After attending 
to the report of a committee previously appointed, to erect a fence 
around the tomb of our ancestor, it was announced that we had 
arrived at the Point, two miles south of the ferry. A walk of a 
few minutes brought us to the grave of our ancestor in the old 
cemetery, where a handsome monument was erected by the family 
in 1848. Immediately after returning to the boat, the audience, 
being increased by numerous inhabitants of Saybrook, was ad- 
dressed by the Hon. Elisha Whittlesey, first comptroller of the 
United States treasury. It was then unanimously 

Resolved, That our grateful acknowledgments are due, and are 
hereby presented to our friend and relative, the Hon. Elisha 
Whittlesey, for the elaborate and instructive address to which we 
have just listened ; and that, if agreeable to himself, we respect- 
fully solicit a copy for publication. 

While the boat was returning with us to the ferry, reports 
were presented by the treasurer and by a committee appointed at 
a previous meeting to superintend the publication of a Family 
Record. It was then 

Resolved, That our thanks be presented to our secretary, Rev. 
John S. Whittlesey, for his long-continued and indefatigable labors 
in behalf of this association, especially in preparing a memorial 
chart of the family. 

On arriving again at the house of Capt. Whittlesey, it was an- 
nounced that tea was in waiting, and the well-loaded tables were 
once and again crowded with grateful guests. A little season was 



!6 WHITTLESEY GEXEALOGY. 

then spent in providing for the financial wants of the association, 
after which it was 

Resolved, That the publishing committee be directed to place 
the memorial and chart in several cities and other places for sale, 
and that they give suitable notice of the same to all persons inter- 
ested. Also, 

HesolreJ, That our thanks be presented to Capt. Azariah Whit- 
tlesey and family and to the other friends at Saybrook for their 
very kind and generous hospitalities and this delightful visit. 

Communications were read from various members of the fam- 
ily who were not able to be present ; after which, the friends, be- 
ing nearly all Christians, united in singing the hymn — " Blest be 
the tie that binds our hearts in Christian love." Prayer was then 
offered by Rev. Joseph Whittlesey of Berlin, and the benediction 
was given by Rev. John Whittlesey of Salem. The friends then sep- 
arated, many of them, probably, to meet never again in this life. 
It was felt that the objects specified in the circular, calling the 
meeting, were fully realized, viz.: To exchange friendly and chris- 
tian greetings with many relatives with whom otherwise they 
would never become acquainted in this world ; and to enjoy one 
of the most pleasant and profitable gatherings on earth.

ADDRESS OF ELISHA WHITTLESEY, 

DELIVERED AT A 

MEETING OF THE WHITTLESEY FAMILY, 

Which convened at Say/) rook, Connecticut, September 20, 1853. 



Published, Washington, 1855. 

The following resolution was unanimously adopted at the meet- 
ing of the Whittlesey family, held at Saybrook, Conn., 1855. 

Resolved, That our grateful acknowledgments are due, and are 
hereby presented to our friend and relative, the Hon. Elisha Whit- 
tlesey, for the elaborate and instructive address to which we have 
just listened ; and that, if agreeable to himself, we respectfully 
solicit a copy for publication. 

Mr. Chairman, Relatives \ and Friends : The practice has prevailed, 
within a few years past, for the descendants of the same ancestry to assem- 
ble and renew, or to form acquaintance, and to draw closer the cords of 
affection and love. The custom has long existed in New England for the 
children to return to the family hearth at the annual Thanksgiving for the 
blessings and bounties of a past year ; to greet an aged father and mother, 
if both survive, bringing with them their offspring to bow to the family 
altar, in ascribing praise to their Heavenly Father for His multiplied and 
numerous kindnesses and mercies. If, during the year, the hand of death 
had touched and severed the tender cord uniting relatives, and removed a 
loved one to the spirit world, the Author of Life was implored to sanctify the 
dispensation of His providence to the spiritual good of the survivors. Such 
associations added strength to the family ties, and brought hearts in nearer 
communion with God. They tended to form the general character of New 
Englanders, so much admired for order, stability, intelligence, industry, and 
economy. They were based upon love, the foundation of all that is good upon 
earth, and on which alone we must rely for salvation. If love, warm, ardent 
love, existed in families, there would be no jars, no dissensions ; if in com- 
munities, no strife, no contentions ; if in nations, no garments rolled in blood. 
It is the silken cord of marriage; the shield of infant helplessness ; the pro- 
tector of childhood and youth ; the succor of manhood ; the downy pillow of 
declining age ; and that on which the head rests, if death is peaceful. With- 
drawn from its influence, Cain slew his brother. Biblical history records 
many scenes of tender family love and affection. Who, in Christian com- 
munity, has not sympathized with Jacob, when Reuben was interceding 
with him to permit Benjamin to go with the brethren into Egypt : " Me," 
he said, " have ye bereaved of my children. Joseph is not, and Simeon is 
not, and ye will take Benjamin away ; all these things are against me." 
"And he said, my son shall not go down with you; for his brother is 
dead, and he is left alone ; if mischief befall him bv the way in which ye 
go, then shall ye bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave." The 
famine presses ; the sons, after earnest solicitations, refuse to go after corn 
without the lad, although death should be the result. The venerable 
father yields ; and he says : " Take your brother, and arise, go again unto 
the man ; " but he commends them to the mercy of the Almighty ; and, with 
humble submission says : " If I be bereaved of my children, I am bereaved." 
It is a trait in the New England character to associate with, and to cultivate 
affection for, distant as well as near relatives. The history of families is 
traced, and the degree of relationship ascertained and perpetuated by per- 
manent records. The first meeting of the Whittlesey family in 1845, assem- 
bled to take incipient steps to ascertain the extent of our relatives in this 
country, and the subsequent meetings were held to execute that object, and 
to make record thereof. The tradition was, that we all descended from 



WHITTLESEY GEXEALOGY. 

John Whittlesey, who landed at Saybrook ; but when he landed was not 
generally known, nor the number of children that composed the family. 
By the designation of the Whittlesey family, all are embraced who trace 
their ancestry to John Whittlesey ; and we have no reason to believe that 
any other of the name emigrated to this country. All who possess any 
share of his blood, by whatever name they are known, we of the name 
greet them as relatives, and love them as such. No suitable monument 
marking his grave, measures were adopted to erect one, and we rind it 
finished. Our ancestor, whose grave we have visited, and to whose mem- 
ory we have assembled to pay our respects, and to greet each other as rela- 
tives descended from the same common stock, lived in an interesting period 
of the history of the world. Powerful governments had existed, flourished, 
and decayed ; wealth not surpassed by modern times had corrupted individ- 
uals, masses, and nations ; commerce had been extensively carried on by 
land and sea ; and at the end of almost five thousand five hundred years, 
the fairest continent formed by that Almighty Power that said " Let the 
waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the 
dry land appear, and it w T as so," was unknown to civilized man. The great 
lights of science and learning had not conceived the idea of another conti- 
nent ; and it was left to Christopher Columbus, a Genoese, the son of a poor 
wool-comber, to present it to the favorable consideration of his own govern- 
ment ; and not receiving any encouragement to test his new theory, he 
applied to Portugal with no better success, and afterwards to Spain. 
" Eighteen years had elapsed since he first conceived the idea of his enter- 
prise ; most of that time had been passed in almost hopeless situation, 
amidst poverty, neglect, and ridicule." There is more in that than one 
thought — "that the other side of the globe contained land" — than ever 
emanated from the mind of any other human being. The world has been 
blessed with renowned philosophers, astronomers, chemists, geologists, nav- 
igators, inventors, statesmen, authors, divines, and jurists ; but in vastness 
of conception, Columbus exceeds them all. No human thought ever has, or 
will, so influence and shape the destiny of man as the one mentioned. It is 
unnecessary to ask what would now be the condition of Europe, Asia, and 
Africa, if this continent had not been discovered by Columbus, for no mind 
is capacious enough to answer the question. It might have been found by 
chance, but its existence was apparent to his mind by deep thought and 
reasoning. No one of the many millions who have been born here would 
have had an existence. Our European ancestors would have left descend- 
ants, but not us. The condition they now occupy we do not know ; but 
this we may reasonably believe, it would not equal ours in freedom of civil 
and religious liberty, in the abundance for supporting life, or in the advan- 
tages and privileges of revelation. Luther would have lived ; the Reforma- 
tion would have commenced and progressed, precisely as history records; 
but where would be seen its effects and fruits at this day? In my opinion, 
more depends on the people of the United States of America, in the purpose 
and under the guidance of an overruling Providence, to civilize and chris- 
tianize the uncivilized and unchristian ized parts of the human family, than 
all the other parts of the world. We have no foreign conquests or colonies 
with which interest prompts us to drive a profitable commerce as para- 
mount to all other considerations ; but our missionaries go into heathen 
lands to carry the Word of God, and to preach Christ crucified ; to convince 
immortal beings of their lost and ruined condition by nature; and to proclaim 
" There is balm in Gilead," and a physician that can heal them. Their 
labors have been greatly blest, and thousands bv their instrumentality have 
" cast their idols to the moles and to the bats." Our ancestor having emi- 
grated to this country as early as 1650, being within thirty years of the first 
settlement in New England, we, his descendants, are numerous, and it is 
our privilege to co-operate in this great work of spreading the gospel. 
Eternity alone can disclose the magnitude and extent of the result of the 
thought, " that the other side of the globe contained land." Ferdinand and 
Isabella, king and queen of Spain, furnished Columbus with three small 
vessels, and one hundred and twenty men to test his theory, and with these 
he departed from Palos on the 3d of August, 1492. He discovered San Sal- 
vador on the nth, and Cuba on the 28th of October, and Hispaniola on the

6th of December following, and returned to Palos, where he arrived on the 
15th of March, 1493. His theory was thus demonstrated to be correct, 
although the main continent was not then seen. Soon after this commenced 
the Reformation in Germany. Martin Luther had examined into the nature 
and use of the seven sacraments, as held by the Romanists, "and denied 
the name of sacrament to confirmation, holy orders, marriage, or extreme 
unction." His views were written and published in 1521. His books having 
been burned by the universities of Cologne and Laurain, and at Rome, 
Luther determined to retaliate, and at Wittenberg, on the 10th of December, 

1 52 1, he burned publicly several popular Papal works, including the bull of 
Leo X against himself. The Emperor Charles of Germany summoned 
Luther to appear before a diet, to be held at Worms, on the 17th of April, 

1522. Two questions were propounded to him — 1st, Whether he avowed 
himself the author of the books bearing his name ? 2d, Whether he was dis- 
posed to retract, or persist in their contents? His answer to the first ques- 
tion was in the affirmative. The diet, having closed the business for that 
day, adjourned. On assembling the next day, the second question was re- 
peated, and his answer was given in a speech of two hours, which ended by 
these words : " Let me then be refuted and convinced by the testimony of 
the Scriptures, or by the clearest arguments, otherwise I cannot and will 
not recant ; for it is neither safe nor expedient to act against conscience. 
Here I take my stand; I can do no otherwise, so help me God. Amen." 
That speech and that conclusion commenced Reformation. Luther was ex- 
communicated the next day, and confined in the castle of Wittenberg; and 
then he wrote several works, and corresponded with several persons whose 
views were in accordance with his own, or who were awakened to the cor- 
ruption of the church and the necessity of a reform. The Reformation ex- 
tended into Switzerland, France, Bohemia, Holland, England, Ireland. 
Scotland, Poland, Lithuania, and Hungary. The Papal power deluged a 
portion of these countries with blood. The council of Trent was held for 
more than seventeen years, and schemes were formed to overthrow the 
Protestant Church. England having been relieved from persecution under 
the Papal power, and James I having issued a proclamation that all Protest- 
ants conform to the rites and ceremonies of the Church of England, the dis- 
senters were persecuted. Some were burned, others banished, and others 
excommunicated. More than five hundred dissenting clergymen were si- 
lenced or degraded. Many of the dissenters tied to Holland, from whence a 
part of them sought liberty of conscience in America. Persecution has not 
been confined to any age or religious sect. Anyone would naturally and 
most reasonably conclude, that conscientious, religious men, who had been 
compelled by cruel, unrelenting persecutions, to leave their country, their 
family connections, the associations of childhood, youth, and more mature 
age, the comforts of home, ample means of support, schools, churches, the 
graves of their fathers, children, and, perhaps, of a beloved companion, to 
seek shelter in a distant wilderness, inhabited by savages, exposed in their 
voyage to shipwreck, in ships unskillfully navigated, poorly supplied, with- 
out houses to cover them on landing, and without provisions prepared in 
advance to sustain life, would, from principle and duty, have hearts so filled 
with love to God and man, as to respect the personal rights of others to their 
fullest extent. History, however, furnishes many lamentable instances to 
the contrary. Some of those who fled from persecution, leaving behind 
them every tie and comfort referred to, were no sooner in power, than they 
in turn became persecutors of nonconformists, and imprisoned, fined, 
whipped, and banished them. Whether our ancestor fled from persecu- 
tion, although young, or came to this country with others who were obliged 
from that cause to establish their homes on the newly-discovered continent, 
or whether he came as an adventurer, is not known; but if the Reformation 
and the persecution that succeeded had not taken place, it is not probable 
he would have left his place of birth. Zeal and perseverance in a good, just 
cause are commendable, but fanaticism, on any question or in any cause, 
should be guarded against and avoided. Controlled by the arch enemy, it 
assails morality, religion, order, law, the harmony of churches, families, 
neighborhoods, states, and the Union itself. The Mayflower that left Ply- 
mouth, England, on the 6th of September, 1620, with the first band of Pur'i- 



20 WHITTLESEY GENEALOGY. 

tans, arrived on what is now the coast of Massachusetts on the 9th of No- 
vember, and on the nth of December a part of the congregation of the 
Rev. Mr. Robinson, who had lied from persecution, landed at what is now 
known as Plymouth, Massachusetts. No one hundred men, by their volun- 
tary choice, were ever surrounded by so many perils. Cold, famine, disease, 
savages, not one of them, but all combined. The number of Indians that 
inhabited the territory, now the United States, is not known; but it must 
have been very great. The Narragansett, Mohegan, and Pequot tribes 
were powerful in the immediate vicinity of the first settlements in New Eng- 
land. The Indians, as a class of people, were bold, courageous, and reso- 
lute. In oratory, not surpassed. It was said in England, after Mr. Jeffer- 
son published his speech of Logan, in his notes on Virginia, that it was 
written by Mr. Jefferson and not spoken by Logan. The speech is Indian 
throughout, and Mr. Jefferson never saw the day he could compose it. He 
substituted parts of one or two sentences, which greatly weakened the force 
of the language. The speech was correctly published at the time in Williams- 
burg, Virginia, and in Albany, New Vork. No American statesman has 
equalled the eloquence of Corn Planter, a Seneca chief, in two speeches he 
made to General Washington, at Philadelphia, one in 1790, and the other in 
1791 It was, most evidently, the design of Providence, that the European 
and American aborigines should not amalgamate. A few exceptions exist, but, 
as a general principle, there was no desire to form a union by marriage ; 
and this was wisely ordered by Him who formed them, and has vast objects 
to accomplish in the settlement of this country by Europeans. If amalga- 
mation had taken place — the Indians being owners of the soil and most 
numerous — the European character would have been lost. The Bible 
would have been brought here in vain ; schools and churches would not 
have been established ; no free government would have been formed. 
When the Jews were going up to possess the land of Canaan, God said " I 
will send my fear before thee, and will destroy all the people to whom thou 
shalt come and I will make all thine enemies turn their backs against thee." 
" I will not drive them out from before thee in one year, lest the land 
become desolate, and the beast of the field multiply against thee." " By 
little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until thou be in- 
creased, and inherit the land." This has been literally fulfilled in the settle- 
ment of the United States, as if the same promise had been specially made 
by the Great Jehovah to the first emigrants. The Jews were told, in regard 
to the inhabitants of Canaan, " Thou shalt make no covenant with them, 
nor with their gods." " They shall not dwell in thy land lest they make thee 
sin against me ; for if thou serve their gods, it will surely be a snare unto 
thee." This command has been more strictly observed by those who settled 
the North American colonies, than it was by the Jews after they entered 
Canaan. It was engraven upon the hearts of our fathers, and remains to 
this day upon our hearts. Saybrook, where our ancestor, John Whittlesey, 
resided, and where his remains now repose, is among the earliest towns 
settled in the limits of the territory, now the State of Connecticut, and in 
several particulars it occupies a prominent page in history. A grant of land 
was made by the Earl of Warwick unto the Right Honorable William, Vis- 
count Say and Seal, and unto the Right Honorable Lord Brook and others, 
on the 19th of March, 1631. This was thirty-one years before the charter of 
Charles, which was in 1662. The boundary of the grant from the Earl of 
Warwick was from the Narragansett river, forty leagues on the seashore, of 
three miles to a league, making one hundred and twenty miles, as the coast 
towards Virginia, from the Western Ocean to the South Sea. George 

Qwick was one of the patentees, and in the summer of 1639, ne named 
the tract about the mouth of the river, Saybrook, in honor of Lords Say and 
Seal, and Brook. In the year 1635, the proprietors appointed John Win- 
throp, the younger, an agent, and authorized him to erect a fort on the river 

mnecticut, as lie came to the bay; and to build houses for fifty men, at 
least, to be employed, and afterwards such houses as might receive men of 
quality. The last-mentioned houses were to receive the distinguished pro- 
pi ; >r a part of them, and it is said that Oliver Cromwell contemplated 
to make this point his residence. The fort was erected and garrisoned. 
Indians were constantly on the watch — captured, tortured, and killed. 



WHITTLESEY GENEALOGY. 21 

not only the inhabitants, but the soldiers when out of the fort and not secure 
at all points. Vessels were captured in the river, within sight of the fort, 
and the crews were put to death, or to the most excruciating pains that sav- 
age barbarity could invent. 

In 1636, the fort was besieged — the houses without were destroyed, 
stacks were burned, cattle killed. A portion of the Pilgrims who landed at 
Plymouth in 1620 from the Mayflower, with other emigrants, settled at 
Newton (soon afterwards called Cambridge), at Dorchester, and Watertown ; 
in 1635, or fifteen years from the time of landing, " became so cramped and 
straightened for room," that they made settlements at Hartford, Windsor, 
and Wethersfield — traversing a wilderness of a hundred miles in extent, 
encountering such hardships and privations as only men, women, and chil- 
dren of their resolution, strengthened by faith in the guidance of an over- 
ruling Providence, could bear. The settlement at Saybrook was contem- 
poraneous with the first settlements within what are now the boundaries of 
this state. The most sanguinary battle in the early history of the Colony, 
considering the number engaged, was fought on the 26th of May, 1637, 
between sixty men from Connecticut and twenty from Massachusetts, under 
the command of John Mason, and the Pequots, a powerful tribe of Indians 
— bold, courageous, vindictive, skillful in the use of the bow and arrow, and 
hostile to the whites. The Indians lost about six hundred men, women, and 
children. The loss of the whites was two only. Mason left the scene of 
slaughter with twenty men, and marched across the country from near 
where New London now is to the fort built by John Winthrop at this place. 
The roar of cannon bore testimony to the importance of the victory in the 
estimation of the garrison and the inhabitants. It being ascertained that 
" the men of quality," so spoken of in the power of attorney given to John 
Winthrop, would not emigrate to this country, George Fenwick, on behalf 
of the proprietors, on the 5th of December, 1644, s °ld the fort and a portion 
of the land, and ceded the jurisdiction to Connecticut, so far as it was, or 
should be, in his power to make the conveyance. The next year the General 
Court of Connecticut confirmed the grant, and levied an impost duty of two 
pence on each bushel of grain, and six pence on each hundred pounds of bis- 
cuit, and a small duty on all beaver that might be exported from the mouth 
of the river for ten years, from the 1st of March, 1646. At this time the pro- 
ductions of the country on and near the Connecticut river in Massachusetts, 
as far up as Springfield, were sent to market down that river, and the duties 
levied on exports, to pay the consideration of the cession by George Fen- 
wick, were deemed by Massachusetts to be burdensome, and they were sub- 
jects of complaint and negotiation. The fort commanding the mouth of the 
river greatly added to the importance of this position in the early settle- 
ment of the country, as it not only tended to give protection to the inhab- 
itants, but made the commerce of Massachusetts exported out of the river 
pay tribute. 

The refusal of the inhabitants of this town in 1675 to surrender the fort 
to Major Andross, an emissary of the Duke of York, is proof of their cour- 
age, fidelity, and sterling integrity. When the surrender was demanded by 
a superior armed force conveyed by water the surrender was prompt and 
decisive. Common schools were co-existent with every settlement in New 
England. The prominent emigrants were men of learning, and all were 
intelligent, moral, and practical. All duly estimated the importance of edu- 
cating their children, and qualifying them to transact the common business 
of life ; but many were fitted for the bar, the pulpit, and halls of legislation. 
The incorporations of townships, with the power to elect officers, to levy 
taxes, to investigate complaints for the violation of criminal laws, were 
admirable primary schools for the display of sound judgment, talent, intelli- 
gence, and ingenuity. If a young man discharged a minor office with 
fidelity and requisite ability he was promoted ; and the house of representa- 
tives, or the council, was open to his ambition. Common schools w r ere 
requisite to instruct the masses, and to disseminate general intelligence, but 
colleges were necessary for knowledge of classical literature. The emigrants 
for a long period of time were restricted by their means for raising money ; 
and establishing the Harvard University at Cambridge, Mass., in 1638, 
eighteen years after the Pilgrims landed, show r s the anxiety of the noble

spirits of that day to raise high the standard of education. Those who were 
able in Connecticut to educate their sons in college sent them to Cambridge ; 
but finding it inconvenient, and an expenditure of money without the Colony 
that might better be retained in it, an effort was made in 1698 by several 

\ men and other distinguished men to raise funds for establishing a col- 
lege within the Colony. New England — the descendants of New Engend- 
ers, wherever located — the states and territories of the United States, the 
isles of the sea, the missionary stations in Europe, Asia, and Africa, are 
under obligation to the New England clergymen. They were foremost in 
promoting common school and collegiate education, and in the maintenance 
of virtue and sound morals. In conflicts with the Indians, they nerved the 
arms of the whites for battles ; moderated their exultation, if victorious, and 
raised them from despondency, if vanquished, by repeating the common law 
of Moses. " Thou shalt not be affrighted at them ; for the Lord thy God is 
among you, a mighty God and terrible." The non-conformists were the 
advocates of freedom at the commencement and during the American Rev- 
olution. They were not politicians, in the ordinary acceptation of the term; 
but they were supporters of order and right, and they co-operated with the 
people in the great object of establishing a free, independent, and republican 
government. They possessed, in my earliest recollection, great influence, 
without mingling with any partv organization. It was the influence of intel- 
ligence, of morals, of religion, of devotedness to their high and sacred call- 
ing. The first meeting to found a college in Connecticut convened at New 
Haven in 1700. A library being essential for consummating their object, 
about forty quarto volumes were then and there contributed — a small 
beginning ; but the work thus commenced, and the movers in the scheme 
were encouraged. The library of Yale College now contains 50,481 volumes. 
At another meeting in 1701 the college was located at Saybrook, temporarily, 
and the first commencement was held here on the 13th of September, 1702. 
Fourteen commencements following were held here, and degrees were con- 
ferred ; but by combining interests and by increased donations, a majority 
of the trustees decided to locate the college at New Haven, and gave it the 
name of Yale in " honor of Elihu Yale." who contributed to it liberally in 
books and money. This is the third college established in the United States. 
Harvard preceded it by sixty-two years, and William and Mary at Williams- 
burg, Virginia, by nine years. The celebrated Saybrook platform was 
drawn up and agreed upon in this place on the gth of September, 1708, by a 
convention of ministers and delegates from churches in the four counties of 
Hartford, Fairfield, New London, and New Haven, the only counties then 
organized in the Colon}-. The convention was held in pursuance of an act 
of the legislature at the previous May session It agreed to recommend the 
confession of faith adopted by a synod at Boston on the 12th of May, 1680 ; 
and, for the better regulation of the administration of church discipline 
fifteen articles were adopted. A difference of opinion had existed as to dis- 
cipline and ecclesiastical rules and government in the churches. The con- 
vention was held to reconcile that difference and to restore harmony. A 
platform was agreed upon, and it has outlived all platforms adopted since ; 
and has done more to advance the peace and happiness of the people in New 
England, and in other sections, than all the platforms that have been 
adopted from 1708 to the present time. It was confirmed by the legislature 
at its October session of the same year ; but the act of confirmation ex- 
pressly stated it was not to prevent "any other society or church from 
establishing, exercising worship, and discipline, in their own way, according 
to their consciences." If conventions at this day, whether political or ecclesi- 
astical, met to harmonize, to cement, and to build up — and not to disturb, to 

rate, and to destroy — they would better promote the temporal and 
spiritual interests of the people than they do now. The Saybrook platform 
will be spoken of as long as time shall endure Some will mention it with 

set, and some with derision. I have a copy of it with me that was 
printed in the year 1 710, by Thomas Short, at New London. My friend, 

• Force, an antiquarian, was so kind as to permit me to take it from his 
library to exhibit to this meeting, most appropriately assembled at this spot, 
where our ancestor resided. Mr. Force is editing The American Archives, 
and is doing more to collect historical facts of this country, from its discovery

to the formation of the constitution, than is being done by any other indi- 
vidual, or by combinations of individuals or societies. We are informed by 
the committee of publication, who have so long and faithfully labored for 
us, that " John Whittlesey is believed to be the only person of the name who 
ever emigrated to the United States. He came to this country about 1650, 
and became a tanner and shoemaker." Roger Sherman was a shoemaker, 
and one of the most useful and respectable men of this country. He made 
shoes in early manhood, and laws and constitutions in mature age. Mr. 
Mason said of him: " Roger Sherman had more common sense than any 
man I ever knew." Mr. Jefferson characterized him as " a man who never 
said a foolish thing in his life." As one of his descendants, I rejoice that 
our ancestor was not ashamed to work. His occupation was respectable, 
useful, and profitable. Such was his character that he won the affections of 
Miss Ruth Dudley, a daughter of Wm. Dudley of Guilford, Conn. The char- 
acters of young men in those days "were weighed in the balance," and 
voung ladies knew in what light to view them Our relatives have generally 
enjoyed that medium condition that Agur so earnestly supplicated the Ruler 
of all Events might be his when he said, "Give me neither poverty nor 
riches." This produces the greatest degree of earthly bliss and happiness, 
although we are prone to envy the rich for their supposed superior enjoy- 
ments. Our family has rather sought to be useful; industrious, honest, 
economical, moral, and religious, than to hoard up riches. We are blessed 
with an ancestry whose history we may study without a blush of shame or 
remorse. They were Puritanic, and if they did not formally enter into the 
following covenant, recommended by the North Association of Hartford 
county in the year 171 1, they practiced it : " That they would look well to 
their households, keep their children and servants in due subjection, instruct 
them in the principles of religion, and endeavor to restrain them from all pro- 
faneness and immorality ; that, as much as in them lay, they would live 
peaceably with all men, carefully avoiding the unjustly giving or taking 
offense ; that they would be careful to maintain a chaste conversation, watch- 
ing against all incentives to uncleanness, especially against keeping vain and 
disorderly company ; that they would mind their own business, and strictly 
observe the rules of righteousness in commerce and dealings with one another 
— needfully watching against all violations by deceit, oppression, and all 
unjust, dishonest dealing whatsoever ; that they would speak the truth one 
with another, avoiding all lying, slandering, backbiting, reviling, and promise- 
breaking." Have not all these principles and rules been impressed on our 
minds by our parents from the earliest recollections, and held constantly in 
view by conversations and unwavering, bright examples ? The Sabbath- 
school to instruct, the lecture-room and the sanctuary to gain spiritual 
knowledge and strength, the chamber of sickness to administer to disease, 
the hovel of want to relieve by suitable aid, and the house of mourning to 
give consolation to wounded distressed hearts — are familiar to our relatives. 
So far as I know or believe, they are strangers to the gambling table, to the 
haunts of dissipation and revelry, to the company of Sabbath-breakers, to 
■ the associations of infidels, and to the houses of infamy. Boasting is ex- 
cluded, but we may say with the Psalmist, " The Lord hath done great 
things for us, w r hereof we are glad." Every parent has reason to be thank- 
ful that his son, if arrived to years of manhood, has not committed an offense 
the punishment of which is the penitentiary ; or that his daughter has not 
forfeited the confidence of her mother, and brought anguish to a bosom on 
which she once leaned and fondled with so much delight. Numerous as the 
name is, scattered over this broad land through its length and breadth, I do 
not know of a criminal record that perpetuates the guilt of one of the family. 
There was a transaction during the war of 18 12 we wish was blotted out 
from our memories. An intelligent, pious, zealous, energetic maiden rela- 
tive, from the state of New York, who was with us at our meeting in 1845, 
from a sense of duty to the cause of education and religion, left her country 
and the endearments of home to reside at Beirut in Syria. She arrived at 
the place of her labors and anticipated usefulness ; but she soon sank under 
disease, ceased from earthly toils, and entered, as we hope and believe, into 
a state of peaceful, blessed rest. Another relative, Mrs. Rosanna Foote, 
more nearly connected than the other lady with my branch of the family 



24 



WHITTLESEY GENEALOGY. 



and some others here present — a lady of the most amiable and lovely dis- 
position, pious from childhood, of enlarged mental endowments — devoted 
her life to the missionary cause, and with the Rev. Mr. Foote, her husband, 
resided several years at Tripoli and on the neighboring mountains in Syria. 
The disease that eats and consumes, when it wastes the earthly tabernacle, 
was making rapid progress on her frame ; and with the hope she might see 
her beloved relatives, and the home of her infancy, she commenced and 
prosecuted the journey under exceedingly trying circumstances ; but pain 
and distress and agony were subdued and silenced by submission and faith 
and hope. The highlands, first seen at sea on approaching New York, were 
announced from masthead. The news lighted up the countenance of an 
expiring, rational, and immortal being, on the boundary between two worlds, 
when an angel was commissioned to bear away her spirit, to hold com- 
munion, as we hope and believe, with the spirits of father and mother, and 
others she loved on earth ; leaving a sweet child, an affectionate husband, 
sisters, brothers, and relatives, to mourn that they should no more see her 
on earth. One of our relatives spent several years in the missionary field of 
the Sandwich Islands, and lately arrived in this state on account of ill- 
health. Our ancestors believed that all good citizens should be ready and 
willing to share the dangers of the camp, if the country was engaged in war. 
Many of them were in the old French war and in the war of the Revolution. 
One of them was slain at the head of his company at the battle of Wyoming, 
and one was massacred at Fort Griswold. In the municipal concerns of 
towns and counties, in dispensing justice on the bench, in legislating for 
states, perhaps our relatives have discharged their full share of duty, and 
with commendable acceptance. Every rational, immortal being has import- 
ant duties to perform in whatever station he occupies. The unsubdued 
firmness, and the undaunted courage of the rank and file win the battle, 
although a more enlarged, scientific mind plans and directs. All of us have 
weighty responsibilities resting upon us in training our children and others 
cast upon us ; in rescuing the unprotected orphan from the paths of vice ; 
administering to his wants, physical, mental, and spiritual ; in bearing our 
share of the expenses of the many benevolent institutions of the day ; in 
exerting a moral influence in the respective communities in which we reside ; 
and especially in looking into our own bosoms to see if all is right there, and 
if not, to cast out and dislodge whatever is imperfect and wrong. To know 
one's self is the most difficult lesson to learn, and yet the most necessary 
and useful We have a rich, unbounded heritage in the free government, and 
in the admirable institutions left us by our ancestors. After years of toils, 
sacrifices, and sufferings, their highest anticipations were fully accomplished. 
Xo people compare with us in prosperity and happiness. As patriots and as 
Christians, we should perpetuate the government under the Constitution to 
our children, that they and their children may participate in the same bless- 
ings we have so bountifully enjoyed. Dear relatives, we are soon to sep- 
arate, and very few of us will meet again on earth ; but, depending on the 
mercy of God, through the merits of His Son, let it be our unwavering aim 
to meet in Heaven.

JOHN AND RUTH (DUDLEY) WHITTLESEY 



AND 



THEIR DESCENDANTS 



I. JOHN WHITTELSEY, b. July 4, 1623, in Cambridge- 
shire, Eng., near Whittlesea (the son of John Whittelsey 
b. in 1593, Cambridgeshire, Eng., and Lydia Terry, whom he 
m. in London, Oct., 162 1-2.) (Her mother's name was Wesley.) 
[St. Anne Ch. Records, London, 1624.] This John Whittelsey 
came to America with the Lords Say and Seal Company in 
1635. [Hon. Charles C. Whittelsey, St. Louis, 1885.] " On 
the 19th of March, 1631, Robert Lord of Warwick, president of 
the Council of Plymouth, under his hand and seal, did grant 
and confirm to the Hon. Win. Viscount, Say and Seal, Robert 
Lord Brooks, Robert Lord Rich, Chas. Fennes, Esq., Sir Na- 
thaniel Rich, et a/., in all eleven, from Narragansett River to 
Virginia. In 1635, Lords Say and Seal, and Robert Lord 
Brooks arrived in Boston bringing with them a complement of 
young men." [Hist. Conn., Benj. Trumbull, 1818. Mass. Hist. 
Colonies. Agreement of Saybrook with John Winthrop and" 
Say and Seal et al. 1635.] 

In the early records of Boston and Saybrook we find the 
name written in many forms of orthography. The earliest in 
Boston letters, dated 1636, we find it written as John Whitele, 
other places as Whitly, Whitley, Whitsly, Whitsley, Whitelsey, 
Witsley, Whichley, Witesley, W'hichelsey, and Witese. [Mass. 
Colony Records. 1 628-1 641. Colony Records of Connecticut 
and Mass.] 

In 1636, news reached Boston that the Dutch settlers were 
coming up the Connecticut, and Lords Say and Seal called 
together their men and boys and hastened to the mouth of the 
river just in time to prevent the Dutch entering the river in 
their boats. 

The records of Saybrook from this time to 1670, were de- 
stroyed in the burning of the New London Halls of Record, 
where they were kept, but we find that " The Whittelseys " are 
mentioned as among the inhabitants of Middlesex county in 1648. 
[Field's statistical account of Middlesex county.] 

A letter from John Clark ct al. in 1660, to Gov. John Win- 
throp at Hartford, because pay was refused men for cutting- 
twenty acres of grass for Master Fenick's (Fenwick) farm. 
" We have sent up to your worship one of the men we employed 



2 6 WHITTLESEY GENEALOGY. 

in the service aforesaid. His name is John Whittlese, who can 
further inform you in the case propounded." [Mass. Hist. Coll., 
Vol. 9, "The Trumbull Papers."] 

" John Whittlesey, 1662, and William Dudley of Saybrook, 
contracted with the town to keep a ferry across the Connecticut 
river at Say Brook, from Tilleys (Tullys) Point, for which the 
town gave them all the toll received of strangers, except the 
inhabitants of Say Brook ; twenty acres of upland, and ten of 
meadow, and two hundred pounds in commonage : one hundred 
pounds on each side of the river. Whittlesey and Dudley con- 
tracted to build a road to the point and build a horse canoe or 
boat large enough to carry over three horses at a time and such 
passengers as desired to cross the river." This contract was 
made with John Wastall, John Clark, Wm. Pratt, Wm. Waller, 
and Robert Lay, agents for the town. [Hinman's History of 
First Puritan Settlers, 1846, p. 97.] 

John Whittelse m. at Saybrook, June 20, 1664, Ruth Dud- 
ley b. April 20, 1645, in Guilford, Conn., dau. of William and 
Jane (Lutman) Dudley. [See memoranda.] [Records of Say- 
brook, Conn., Vol. I, X. E. Historical and Genealogical Register, 
Vol. 4, 1850.] 

Mr. John Whittelsey bought lands of Wm. Lay in 1677 and 
1678, and of Lyman Cunningham in 1679. He was among the 
representatives in the General Assembly elected for the town of 
Saybrook between 1644 and 1685 ; he was also elected repre- 
sentative in 1696, '97, '98, '99, and 1703 ; appointed Collector 
of Ministers' Rates, 1678 ; Townsman, 1697 ; Collector of Min- 
isters' Rates in 1681 and '82. [250th Anniversary of the Set- 
tlement of Saybrook, Pamph., Hist, of Middlesex co., Colonial 
Records of Conn.] One of a committee about land claimed by 
Capt. Chapman, 1683 ; one of a committee about controversy as 
to lands ; and one of the attorneys, 1684. [Whittlesey Memo- 
rials p. iv.] One of the Listers, 1685, the same year a witness 
as to town vote of land to James Ley ; one of the "seaters " to 
seat people in the meeting house (/. c, to designate seats for 
persons and families for the year) 1687 ; townsman, 1688, 1689 ; 
one of a committee " to suruay and setle the sayd road between 
Saybrook mill and Lieut. Joanes' mill, to above Samuel Buell's 
house in Kenllworth, or the most convenient place they can find 
to end," Oct., 1692. [Colonial Records of Conn., Oct., 1692, p. 
85.] One with others to "grant land as they thought conven- 
ient to John (lark; and Collector of Ministers' Rates, 1693; 
was granted five acres of land at Tillys Point Plain, 1694; a 
committee was appointed to lay out land formerly granted to 
him in 1695. [Whittlesey Memorials.] Was one of a commit- 
tee to run line between Saybrook and Had dam, 1688 ; towns- 
man the same year; made freeman April 5, 1704. [Saybrook 
Records.] He erected his house near the ferry, on the west 



WHITTLESEY GENEALOGY.

bank of the river, the site of which remained in the family until 
very recent years. The ferry was conveyed to the town in 
1839. 

" As to the military character of John the propositus, there 
is no record. The Pequod or Pequot war occurred before he 
was first heard of at Saybrook. This settlement, like all those 
of New England pioneers, had its fort built in 1665. Until after 
the war with King Philip, every man was a soldier. They estab- 
lished their families in the midst of hostile Indians, where their 
defense devolved entirely upon themselves. They had no assist- 
ance from the parent country, because emigration to these 
shores was against the wishes of the government. Perpetual 
bloody and desperate war, was the lot of the early Xew England 
man. As early as 1636, Saybrook was the scene of savage 
attacks. Capt. John Mason passed there on his way to assail 
thePequots of Rhode Island. Here, as usual, the fort consti- 
tuted the central figure of the settlement. In 1664, when John 
was married, the Indian wars had not ceased. Scouts, expedi- 
tions, and skirmishes, were events with which every one was 
familiar. It required for these operations, which were con- 
ducted by squads, seldom amounting in numbers to a company, 
men who not only had courage but military address. It was 
not always the commissioned officer who had command. Ser- 
geants and corporals were selected with more regard to previous 
service, skill, and character. Small parties were kept as out- 
posts far away in the wilderness where it was necessary to exer- 
cise individual vigilance, equal to that of their savage enemies. 
The country was on the footing of minute militia men, equipped 
and provided for attack. On them rested the security of every- 
thing dear to the inhabitants — country, property, and household. 
We must not think too lightly when we see in the early records 
the prefix 'sergeant' or lieutenant to the names of their first 
characters. Very few attained the rank of ' captain.' There 
is no evidence what part John Whittlesey took in the forays or 
defences of his time.'" [The Military Record of the Descend- 
ants of John Whittlesey and Ruth Dudley, by Col. Chas. Whit- 
tlesey, 1 878. J He died April 15, 1704, forty years after his 
marriage. Having spent the active portion of his life within 
view of the fort, the scene of many conflicts, we are permitted 
to surmise that he bore his part in them. Whether he was a 
willing or an unwilling emigrant is unknown. His appointments 
in the first church of Saybrook shows that he and Ruth were 
eminent christians, and from them has sprung a race who have 
done honor to themselves and their county in every calling 
which they have followed. Mrs. Ruth (Dudley) Whittlesey d. 
Sept. 27, 1714.

England ; came to Guilford, Conn., from the town of Guil- 
ford, thirty miles southeast from London, in the county of 
Surrey. He was m. to Miss Jane Lutman of Wysborough

America and settled in Guilford, Conn., in 1639, with Rev. 
Henry Whitfield, as a part of the Eaton and Hopkins expe- 
dition to Conn. When he arrived with his young wife their 
home was on what is now Fair street. Mr. Dudley was a

2*. JOHN (John 1 ),!). Dec. 1 [, 1665, in the house beside the 
ferry at Say Brook Point, Conn. — the first born Whittelsey in 
.America. On this time-honored spot lie spent his life. He was 
a shoemaker by trade and kept general merchandise for sale ; it 
is also probable that he loaned money in small amounts at a 
good rate of interest. He served the colony in both political 
and military offices. [Old Saybrook Records, Vol. I.] On the 
9th day of May, 1693, married Hannah Long, who was born on 
the 1 1 tli September, 1665, at Say Brook, Conn., and who was 
the widow of Simon Large. 

At a meeting of the General Court, holden at Hartford, on 
the 19th of May, 1696, was made deputy or representative for 
Say Brook, reappointed consecutively until 1704. The name is 
found among the list of those made " freemen " on the 5th of 
April, 1704. Served as "Townsman " during the year of 1705.

MEMORANDA. 

2. Lieutenant John Whittelsey left an Almanac, published in 
1690 by John Tully of Cambridge, Mass., (see picture) in which he 
(Mr. W.) kept his accounts and some memoranda. In 1897 this 
book was in the possession of Mr. John C. Whittlesey of Rockville, 
Conn. Its state of preservation is excellent, writing clear, and of 
good penmanship; it is bound in leather, evidently done by Lieut. 
Whittelsey, and in every instance in which the family name is 
mentioned it is written "Whittelsey." The entries are made on 
parts of pages, not entirely taken up by the calendar of the months 
and advertisements. The following is a copy of some of the notes 
made by Lieut. Whittelsey in this book, under the dates given. 
Under the date of 1690, there is entered, what is evidently a list of 
his debtors. Among them are the following names: " Nathan Prat, 
57; Joseph Prat, 31; Father Whittelsey, 73; Joseph Ingraham, 
24:46:"

the wharf begun by Mary Dudley and her son shall be completely 
finished and the causeway made and highway laid open from the 
said wharf and from the said Whittelsey's house ; according to the 
return of said Hamlin and Christophers ; and the one-half of the 
just cost which the said Mary Dudley and her son have been at, in 
building, the said wharf so far as it is done, shall be allowed and 
paid unto them by the said Whittelsey ; the account of it to be 
adjusted and determined by Nathan Chapman and Mr Daniel 
Buckingham of Saybrook ; and the said Whittelsey shall have the 
liberty, if he desires it, to do what remains to be done to the said 
wharf for the finishing thereof, and also to make causeway, one- 
half of the charge whereof shall be allowed by him by the said 
Dudleys in part of his half of the cost they have been at in what 
they have done to the said wharf as abovesaid, the account of which 
shall also be adjusted by the aforesaid persons, and the said Whit- 
telseys and Dudleys shall keep the said ferry joyntly and together 
until the first day of March next ; or as they now do ; and from 
said first day of March next it shall be kept by the said Mary 
Dudley and her son William for the space of one year and then the 
said Stephen Whittelsey shall take it and keep it for the like space ; 
and so it shall be kept by the said Dudleys and Whittelseys, their 
heirs & etc., by turns by the year for the future until the court

38 WHITTLESEY GENEALOGY. 

The Rev. Samuel Whittelsey was one of the most distinguished 
preachers and faithful ministers of the colony in which he lived. 
Such was the vigor and penetration of his mind that he easily 
comprehended subjects which presented great difficulties to others. 
The dates of the printed sermons preached by the ,Rev. Samuel 
Whittelsey, are: The Election sermon, 1731; sermon preached at 
the ordination of Samuel Whittlesey, Jr., 1737; on the death of 
John Hall, Esq., 1730; at the first church in Boston, 1731. These 
are to be found in the Historical Library at Hartford, Conn. 
[Allen's Big. Diet. Dana's Century discourses at Wallingford. 
Coll. Hist. Soc, X, 159.] 

President Stiles, in an obituary of Rev. Samuel Whittelsey pub- 
lished shortly after his death in the Boston Post Boy, speaks of 
him as follows : " He was a gentleman of penetrating genius, solid 
judgment, and extensive understanding; indefatigable and unwea- 
ried in his application to study and liberal inquiry by which his 
acquaintance with the sciences became extensive, his knowledge 
universal, and in moral wisdom he had few equals. Under the 
influence of Christian principles his soul flowed to diffusive benevo- 
lence. He lived the religion he inculcated and recommended it 
by powerful charms of a virtuous example. His talents as a 
preacher were singular, being master of an engaging ^elocution 
and address, and in composition judicious and instructive. He 
ministered intellectual food and entertained his audience with the 
beaten oil of the sanctuary. He labored with delight in the word 
and doctrine. The services and devotions of the sanctuary were 
his supreme pleasure. In many ways, by his extensive influence, 
he served the Church of Christ and the public glory of. his king- 
dom. Happy in offspring and a well-educated family, his sons, 
under the advantage of a liberal education, survived him in his gen- 
ius, improvement and Christian character. As a private Christian 
he was exemplary, virtuous, and pious; had a natural reservedness 
of mind which rendered him singular in bearing injuries which 
the best cannot escape; and when reviled he reviled not again, 
but retaliated in gratitude with meekness and goodness which 
extorted veneration from the partial, as well as ordained a cheer- 
ful tribute from the candid judge of merit. Not less eminent was 
his patience, especially in the lengthened illness which finished his 
life. The supports of religion and well-regulated life shone in 
the steady calmness and composure of his temper during his ill- 
ness ; while a mortification in his legs and feet, arising from an ill 
stage of blood and disorder of body, preyed upon him, and in a 
gradual decline extinguished his life. Thus died Samuel the 
prophet, full of days and the Holy Ghost. After he had long and 
faithfully served his generation he 'fell on sleep, was gathered to 
his fathers and all Israel lamented him.' " 

Dr. Chauncey of Boston said of him that he was one of the 
greatest men in Connecticut. 

Rev. Samuel was a leader of the "Old Light " party in the 
struggles against the " Great Awakening." His will and inventory 
in the New Haven Probate Record, Vol. VIII, show an estate of 
about ^22,000, of which a scant hundred pounds is invested in

81. Davee Whittelsey was a boatman with considerable spirit 
and pluck. It is said that during the time the British were lying 
near to our fort at Saybrook in. their ships of war, some of the 
merchants of that ancient township allowed their desire for higher 
price for their goods to lead them into very dangerous paths in 
trying to dispose of them to the British marines. One or two of 
these men had engaged " Davee " to row them out one dark 
night to the British boat that they might dispose of some 
of their merchandise.. When they w T ere a few minutes out 
from their secret starting place and around in the south cove, 
there was a command to " Halt ! " It was given by that familiar 
and ever watchful commander of the " fort " Col. Tully, who was 
also guarding the coast in that neighborhood. Davee paid no atten- 
tion to the command but pulled a mighty and quickened stroke 
with his oars. Again Col. Tully shouted " Halt ! " but Davee was ob- 
durate. The Col. then ordered one of his men to take aim and he 
then shouted "Halt! or I will fire," but Davee had by this time pulled 
well in to the shore, and still he pulled for his life. The command 
to fire was given, but the bullet missed its aim, struck the handle 
of the oar just betw r een Davee's hands. The next instant the boat

41. *ELIPHALET WHITTLESEY (Eliphalet 9 , John 1 ), 
b. in Newington, Conn., May the 10th, 1714, where he lived and 
became a prosperous farmer, a pillar in the church, one of the 
leading men of the town, a brave and energetic soldier and 
officer in the Colonial Wars, in which he took a very active and 
important part. Owing to Mr. Whittlesey's great physical and 
mental activity and strength, as a farmer, he was one of the 
best known in the vicinity, having one of the best-worked and 
most productive farms then known. His good judgment and 
sound reasoning were soon discovered by the community, and he 
was drawn into the committees of the town, for its good 
government, that was always benefited by his presence. As 
a member of the church he lived the religion he professed. 
As a soldier he fought with valor and rose rapidly to the rank 
of Captain (see mem.), which office at that time was one of 
much greater scope than at the present date. On the 16th of 
Dec, 1736, Mr. Whittlesey married Miss Dorothy Kellogg, who 
was b. Dec. 24, 1716, a young woman destined and well fitted 
to help and encourage her husband on in his career, and to be 
the mother of a large fine family of children with noble hearts 
and all the staunch qualities of their parents and ancestors. 
Mrs. W r hittlesey also inherited great stature and physical powers 
undoubtedly from her father, Martin Kellogg, as it is related 
that on one occasion "with an infant on her hip" she carried 
under the other arm out of church a furious woman who in that 
place attempted to quarrel with one who had married the man 
of her choice. In 1761, Mr. and Mrs. Whittlesey with their 
children, moved to Washington, Conn. They united with the 
church the same year. Mr. Whittlesey was soon after chosen 
" deacon." Mrs. Dorothy (Kellogg) Whittlesey d. in Wash- 
ington, Conn., on the 14th of April, 1772, much lamented, as 
her life had been full of the virtues that crown the life of a loving 

• wife and most devoted mother. Mr. Whittlesey m. on the 23d 
of June, 1774, Hannah, widow of Samuel Mallory, of New 
Milford and Kent. Mr. Whittlesey was appointed a member of 
the General Assembly from Kent, Conn., in May, 1775, also at 
a special session held at Hartford by the order of the Governor, 
called to provide for the defense and safety of the inhabitants 
and to supply troops. Mr. Whittlesey's death occurred July

41. Mr. Eliphalet Whittlesey was commissioned by the 
General Assembly on the 13th of Oct., 1748, to be ensign of the 
10th company or trainband in the 6th regiment of the Colony of 
Conn. On the 9th of May, 1751, was commissioned lieutenant of 
the same company and regiment. Wednesday, March 7, 1756, he 
was appointed and commissioned captain of the 6th company in 
the 4th regiment. February 9, 1757, was commissioned captain of 
the 10th company in the 6th regiment, raised in this Colony.

1st regiment under Phineas Lyman, colonel; 1759, captain of the 
5th company 1st regiment; 1760, captain of 5th company and 1st

when Eliphalet Whittlesey was appointed, he was placed at the 
head of a company which was raised on the call for twenty-five 
hundred men for Maj.-Gen'l Wm. Shirley's command, to operate 
at Crown Point and Iroquois Lake. Captain Eliphalet partici- 
pated in the battles and remained in service during the war. In 
the campaign of 1757, which resulted in the surrender of Ft. 
William Henry to Montcalm's forces, Captain Whittlesey had the 
command of a picked company of one hundred men, most of 
which were from Wethersfield, Conn. 1758, Fort Edward was 
the base of operations and Ticonderoga the objective point. He 
was always in the thickest of the battles at the head of his com- 
panies, which inspired his men to such fighting as can only be 
done when they are led by the bravest of officers. [Records of

British fleet in the St. Lawrence. In 1751 was the Colony's agent 
to Hendericks, chief of the Mohawks, to supply them with cloth- 
ing as an inducement for their continuing in friendship with New 
England. He settled in the first society of Wethersfield, and for 
a season dwelt on the lot east of the Congregational church known 
as the Lattimer place. During the war known as the Queen 
Anne's war he was living at Deerfield, Mass., with his father, step- 
mother, and their three other children. Martin was then eighteen 
years old. In the evening of Feb. 29, 1704, when the ground was 
covered with snow, two hundred French and one hundred and fifty 
Indians, under command of Hutel de Ronville, after a march of 
nearly three hundred miles, fell suddenly upon the sleeping inhab- 
itants of Deerfield; a massacre followed. Father Martin Kellogg 
and his four children were taken prisoners, but Mrs. Kellogg had 
been concealed in the cellar under a tub, upon which the Indians 
sat and regaled themselves with whatever they could find to eat. 
She had escaped from the bed with an infant a few days old, and 
after secreting the child, had turned the tub over herself. The 
cries of the child soon attracted the attention of the Indians, who 
at once seized it and dashed it against the wall. At their depart- 
ure the Indians set fire to the dwelling, but Mrs. Kellogg escaped, 
almost naked and in her bare feet, fled through the deep snow two 
miles to the house then used as a fort. The family was afterwards 
allowed to return from their captivity. Martin was several times 
captured by the Indians, but returned before 17 14, for January 26, 
1 7 14, he was married to Dorothy Chester, born Sept. 5, 1692 (see 
memoranda), by the Rev. Elisha Williams, first pastor of the church 
in Newington, and who was called from there to be the first presi- 
dent of Yale College. Subsequently he removed to Newington, 
where he remained until his death, which occurred Nov. 13, 1758, 
according to the record on the stone at his grave. Dorothy, his 
wife, died Sept. 26, 1754. [Documentary Hist, of Sufifield, Conn., 
H. S. Sheldon, 1879. Hist, of Northfield. N. Y. Doc. Hist, Vol. 
III. Foot Genealogy.] His father, 

Martin Kellogg, was born Oct. 1, 1660, probably at Farming- 
ton. He was often employed as an Indian interpreter, and was a 
very courageous, active man, and a weaver by trade. He survived 
many captures and much severe treatment by the Indians. He 
married first, on Dec. 10, 1684, 

Ann Hinsdale (see memoranda), born at Hadley, Mass., Feb. 
22, 1667, died at Deerfield, Mass., July 19, 1689, by whom he had 
one child. He was married for the third time in 1732, being then

Samuel, was graduated at Yale College in 1729, held the office of 
tutor in Yale from 1732 until 1738 ; A.M. at Yale and Harvard 
University. It was during the period of his tutorship at Yale 
that he was invited to the church in Milford, Conn., to settle as 
colleague pastor with the Rev. Samuel Andrews. He accepted 
the call, but a large minority of the parish remonstrated against 
his ordination on the alleged ground that he was an Arminian 
in his theology, and that his preaching savored too little of 
Christian experience. The council called to ordain him were 
divided in their judgment of the case, and his ordination was 
finally the result of a compromise, which resulted after all in the 



WHITTLESEY GENEALOGY. 53 

formation of a second society. He was ordained Nov. 8, 
1738, and continued the discharging of his official duties until 
his death. After the division of the ordination committee there 
was so much passion in their debate fists were doubled on the 
occasion. In 1741 they separated from the original church 
and "built a decent house for worship," 1742. In 1743 they 
put themselves under the presbytery of New Brunswick, and 
had to meet with much violent opposition. [Bacon's Conn. Hist.

44. CHAUNCEY (Samuel 12 , John 1 ), b. at Wallingford, 
Conn., Oct. 8, 1 7 1 7. He inherited strong mental powers, 
which were highly cultivated by education. Graduated at Yale, 
1738, and continued his classical studies as resident graduate 
on Bishop Berkley's foundation. As the resignation of Rector 
Williams took place in 1739, ^ r - ^Vhittelsey was elected a 
tutor. He served the public in that office for six years, and 
was concerned in the instruction of four classes, two of 
which received a greater part of their education under him. 
During his official connection with the college, the town and all 
Xew England were shaken with religious agitation. That very 
period, Sept. 30, 1740, he was licensed to preach as a candidate 
for the ministry; before then he was solicited to become a can- 
didate for the settlement of Amity Parish, which he declined, 
partly because of his college engagements and partly as he con- 
sidered himself not yet qualified for the work. In reference to 
that request it was recorded on a leaf of his diary, which was in 
possession of Dr. Bacon, " Having repeatedly commended my 
case to God by prayer, and, I think, strictly and impartially 
examined myself, I am as yet too little acquainted with God, the 
Scriptures, human nature in general, and my own heart in par- 
ticular to venture to undertake the great and important work of 
the ministry. () God! fit me for that noble and honorable 
employment if it be thy will that I should be improved in it. 
Let me not enter upon it without thy direction and. blessing. 
Lord Jesus ! Mighty head of the church ! fit me for thy service 
and improve me in thy vineyard. But unless thou go forth 
with me let me not go forth upon that mighty business. O 
may I never be an idle spectator or a slothful laborer in the 
vineyard of my God ! May I be willing to spend and be spent 
in the work of the Lord and for the good and salvation of souls. 
May 1 await God's time, be resigned to his will, and have more 
of the meek and humble spirit of Jesus Christ, be more and 
more weaned from the world, and live above it, that I may 
preach the gospel in truth, not influenced by the fears of man ; 
but may I speak the truth boldly in church, and be blessed by 
his name." Under date of July 6, 1739, he says, "Yesterday 
was sacrament at which I renewed my covenant, at least ex-, 
ternally, with the Lord Jesus Christ, having set apart of the 
day before preparation by fasting and prayer and examination of 
my own heart." 

It is this man of whom David Brainard declared, " He has 
no more grace than a chair," and Peabody in his life of Brainard 
said in regard to this language that it was " a phrase which that 
individual justified by his subsequent proceedings." Chauncey 
explains this by saying that, "This remark of Brainard was 
characteristic of that rash pharisaical and censorious spirit 
which many of the 'new lights' at this time exhibited." This 



56 WHITTLESEY GEXEALOGY. 

ebullition of indecent censoriousness afterwards was repented 
of, and onlv proved at the time the extreme piety was a type 
that Brainard, inexperienced and blinded by spiritual pride as he 
was, could not appreciate. [Peabody's Life of Brainard.] 

In 1745 Mr. Whittelsey resigned his office in the college and 
married Miss Elizabeth Whiting, on the 23d of Sept., 1745. 
Miss Whiting was born June 8, 171 7, the dau. of Joseph and 
Hannah (Trowbridge) Whiting. Mr. Whittelsey settled in New 
Haven as a merchant. He continued in business for ten years. 
During this period he was an active member of the church and 
society. He represented the town in the General Assembly of 
the Colony, and in a variety of public trusts he discharged him- 
self with fidelity and growing influence. He was again called 
to preach, and settled as associate with Mr. Noyes. A council 
was called and declared against the ordination of Mr. Whittel- 
sey or any other candidate. The next day the council decided 
to separate the work of the gospel and ministry and inducted 
him into the pastoral office over the first church and congrega- 
tion of New Haven. [Chapman's Trowbridge.] 

His ministry began in the fortieth year of his age and under 
circumstances so unauspicious was long, peaceful, and, for the 
age, prosperous. " He applied to theological studies and the 
duties of the pastoral office with an ardor, zeal, and assiduity 
equaled by few. His affability and dignity of manners, philan- 
thropy, and integrity, joined to an accurate knowledge of men 
and the affairs of life, commanded esteem and veneration."

President Stiles said of Rev. Mr. Whittelsey, " He was an'ex- 
cellent classical scholar, well acquainted with three learned 
languages, Latin, Greek, and Hebrew, also geology, mathematics, 
natural philosophy, and astronomy, also with a cyclopedia of an 
academic life, and amassed by reading a great treasure of wisdom. 
In literature he was in his day oracular at college, for he taught 
with facility and success in every branch of knowledge." Dr. 
Dana says of him, "He wished not to. exceed seventy yjears. 
According to his desires his usefulness as well as his life was pro- 
tracted to this period. When the close came he closed the scene 
with the same serenity and constancy as he had ever lived. He 
was ready to be offered, having like comfortable reflections in the 
reviews of his life and ministerial warfare as the holy Apostle, and 
a like prospect of a crown of righteousness. His old age was 
amiably splendid as a clear setting sun. His past days looked 
back upon him with a smile of friendship, and the morning of 
immortal felicity dawning of his soul, gloriously irradiated the 
valley of death. We saw the aged saint commend his soul to God, 
full of faith, looking up steadfastly to heaven, seeing the glory of 
God and Jesus on the right hand. He had for a long time ex- 
pressed habitually a full assurance of hope, a confidence that 
knew no fear of dying. Mr. Stiles was desirous to see the triumph 
of that confidence. He came into the room just as death was 
beginning. Taking his friend's hand he said, "Do you feel now 
the assurance of hope ? If you would say yes, and cannot speak, 
answer me by the pressure of your hand." The aged saint rallied 
his dying strength, and with a struggle distinctly answered " Yes." 

The printed sermons of Rev. Chauncey Whittelsey are : 
Connecticut election, 1778 ; ordination of John Hubbard, 1769 ; 
funeral of Isaac Stiles, 1760; death of Abigail Noyes, 1768; at

A council was called to " Settle " Rev. Mr. Dana, and a conso- 
ciation to prevent his ordination met in Wallingford the same day, 
Oct. 11, 1758. The council denied the jurisdiction of the conso- 
ciation and "settled" him, but his pastoral relations were dis- 
solved by that body. It was a controversy between the " old 
lights " and the "new light " parties. Mr. .Dana was understood 
to belong to the liberal school. In 1768, he was honored with the 
degree of Doctor of Divinity from the University of Edinburgh. 
1789 called to the pastoral charge of the First church of New 
Haven. His health failed in 1804. He retired July 30, 1805. He 
manifested his feelings at being snubbed so curtly by always after- 
wards attending public service atthe College chapel. In his old age 
he was recollected as personally a mere shadow of a man, tall, slen- 
der, and ghastly. His prayers at communion service in the chapel 
were remarkably long, solemn, reverential, and impressive. He 
was trustee of Yale College, and an engraving of him adorns the

5, 1744 ; m. Abigail Maverick of Boston, the daughter of a clergy- 
man who left England in the time of the religious persecutions,

William was the son of John Tully, b. about 1626; m. in 167 1 to 
Mary Beaumond, the daughter of William Beaumond (see mem- 
oranda), a native of Carlisle, in the county of Cumberland, on the 
border of Scotland, who came to America in the capacity of the 
"tailor" to Sir Richard Saltonstall. [N. E. Historical and Biog- 
raphical Register, Vol. Ill, p. 161.] John Tully settled in Pota- 
paugh in 1680. He purchased of Robert Say a little house and 
lot on the " town plot," about three-quarters of a mile westward of 
a nook of Salt meadow. He published almanacs from 1682 to 
1702. (One of the almanacs is now in possession of Mr. John 
C. Whittlesey, Rockville, Conn., No. 1149; see picture No. 2. 
It descended to him from John Whittlesey, No. 2, the first-born 
Whittlesey in America.) His last almanac was published in Bos- 
ton after his death, which occurred Oct. 5, 1701. Mr. John 
Tully was also town clerk at Saybrook, and supported his family 
almost entirely by teaching arithmetic, navigation, and astronomy. 
[Transactions of the American Antiquarian Society, Vol. V, p. 
75.] It is said of him that he was a true Christian. His father 
was John Tully, the first of the name to come to America (from 
the parish of Horley, county of Surrey, twenty miles from Lon- 
don, Eng.), with his wife, Sarah Fenner, a sister of the first Wil- 
liam Fenner in this country, who settled at Providence, R. I. The

land, was the daughter of Lieut. William Pratt, the first settler 
who went to Saybrook, and attended the General Court as a deputy 
twenty-three times, the last time at Hartford, May 9, 1678. He 
married Elizabeth Clark, daughter of John Clark. His father was

Mary Beamond (b. in 1647, m. John Tully) was the daughter of

1643. Lydia Danforth was the daughter of Nicholas Danforth, 
Cambridge, county of Suffield (d. 1638), and Elizabeth Symmes, d. 
1629. [Savage.] 

William Tully, b. 1676, was set to watch over a mass of contra- 
band articles which had been taken from the Tories and put in the 
house formerly owned by John Whittlesey. On a certain night 
eight Tories came to the house and demanded entrance. Tully 
begged to be excused from opening the door. They broke in 
without further parley, and rushed forward. Tully's flint was faith- 
ful, and the hammer struck fire. The musket ball passed through 
the first man, and, to Tully's surprise, he still advanced ; but the 
man back of him dropped dead. He then scared the other six 
men off. The first man then dropped dead, with one hand on the 
window and the other grasping a chest of tea. [Mrs. E. W. Kirt- 
land, Saybrook.]

MEMORANDA. 

Stephen Buckingham was the son of Thomas and Margaret 
(Griswold) Buckingham, son of Rev. Thomas Buckingham, who 
married Esther Hosmer in 1646, and who was the son of the first 
settler of the name in this country, Thomas Buckingham, a Welch- 
man, who first went to New Haven and removed to Milford in 
1639. [The L Buckingham Family, by Rev. F. W. Chapman, A.M.

80. *AZARIAH (Ambrose 25 , Stephen 3 , John'), born 2d Feb- 
ruary, 1 741, under the same roof that had sheltered his great 
grandfather and mother, John and Ruth. Mr. Azariah Whittel- 
sey served his apprenticeship in assisting his father at "the 
ferry." Without a doubt, he studied navigation to a considera- 
ble extent and became perfectly familiar with the sailing ground, 
both in the river and sound. In 1763, he married Elizabeth 
Williams, b. December 29, 1747. August, 1776, a ship was 
built at Saybrook, by order of the " General Assembly of the 
Colons- of Connecticut," and passed over the bar ; the largest 
with which this "old Neptune Rib " had ever the honor of try-

ing conclusions. This ship was first described as the " Colony 
ship," afterwards the frigate " Oliver Cromwell." 

In the same season three other towns raised the 7th Regiment 
for the Continental Army. In the May previous, so zealous 
were they, that an appeal was made to the legislature and 
granted, for building a fort on the site of the old one, to con- 
tain six carriage guns for the defense of the town and river 
interests. The work of ship building and fort raising in addi- 
tion to sending men away to the frontier lines of service, the 
eventful year of 1776 was filled for them with sacrifice and the 
true and noble spirit of t;he Revolution. The building of the 
ship was a matter of universal concern. Beginning in January, 
1776, the Colonial Records are replete with solicitude about 
that boat. Mr. Azariah YVhittelsey was appointed master of 
the " Oliver Cromwell " by the General Assembly in July, 
1776. That eventful month, never to be forgotten, and hon- 
ored until the end of time. The frigate was used for cruising 
on the Connecticut River and on Long Island Sound, for coast 
defense. " Whether she on high seas, kept up the notoriety 
begun on the stays, cannot be reported, but as Azariah YVhittel- 
sey was her master, it is safe to say she never ran from the ene- 
my's fire." [Saybrook in the Revolution. Colony of Conn. 
Records.] 

Mr. Whittelsey was drowned at the ferry April 9, 1807. 
Mrs. Whittelsey died May 22, 1823, amid a large circle of

m. Sarah Deming, who was also b. in the year of 1737. Mr. 
Whittlesey acknowledged his baptismal covenant, Feb. 28, 
1762, at the church in Newington ; it is, therefore, to be sup- 
posed that he did not move to Washington, Conn., until 
after his father had settled there. Martin served for a short 
term in the war of the Revolution ; while with the troops 
defending New York he lost the use of his limbs and never 
fully recovered ; his name is found on the " list of pensioners, 
invalid, printed in the Senate Document of the first session 23d 
Congress, 1833-34." The names were placed on the list at 
various times soon after the war and represent soldiers and 
officers who were wounded or disabled. [List Invalid Pension- 
ers in Record of Conn. Men in the War of the Revolution, 18 12, 
and war with Mex. Adjutant-General's office, Hartford, Conn.,

122. *LEMUEL (Eliphalet 41 , Eliphalet 9 , John 1 ), b. in New- 
ington, Conn., May 16, 1740. Mr. Whittlesey lived quietly on 
the farm in this district until he was old enough, and his father 
called him to take part in the Colonial Wars. Lemuel became 
a teamster and was in the army at the front on Lake Champlain.

WHITTLESEY GENEALOGY. 



It is said that he had but one shirt with him during this cam- 
paign, and when it became too much soiled was obliged to take 
it off and wash it in the lake, and then conceal himself among 
the bushes while it dried. While this operation was in process 
on one very bright day, a camp-thief stole the garment and ran. 
The shirtless Lemuel pursued the rascal with much vigor, but 
when he was caught the precious shirt had been thrown away. 
Like all the sons of Eliphalet 41 , having an athletic frame, he 
seized the culprit and stripped him of his own, which he imme- 
diately put on, then returned to his company. [Military Record 
of the Descendants of John W. and Ruth Dudley, by Col. Chas. 
Whittlesey.] Mr. Whittlesey was at Havana (Cuba) in 1762, 
when the Moro Castle was bombarded. He saw the explosion 
of the magazine, and could distinctly hear the screams of the 
inmates of the fort. At this time he was not a soldier but a 
trader or sutler. Nov. 15, 1764, Lemuel Whittlesey married 
Hannah Wells, b. April 22, 1742, the daughter of Robert Wells. 
Mr. Whittlesey again settled down to farm life in Newington, 
Conn., which was a part of Wethersfield. On the 25th of 
August, 1765, Mr. and Mrs. Whittlesey acknowledged their 
baptismal covenant at the church in Newington, and afterwards 
took great interest in the affairs of the church. They are men- 
tioned as members of the church by Rev. Joshua Belden in 1780. 
Mr. Whittlesey was one of the " seaters " at that time, he was 
also one of a " committee to loan money for the schools " ; 1781 
one of a " committee of the society " ; " one of a committee for 
looking into the state of the parsonage, and of the Kensington 
moneys," reappointed in 1782; 1785, one of a "committee to 
meet the committee from the General Court to appoint the 
place for the new meeting-house to stand." [Whittlesey 
Memorials.] In May, 1779, Lemuel was commissioned by the 
General Assembly as lieutenant of the 5th company or train- 
band in the 6th regiment of the state of Connecticut. [Colo- 
nial Records of Conn., 1779.] Mrs. Whittlesey d. April 3, 18 10; 
Mr. Whittlesey d. Aug. 30, 1823. They had the following 
children : 

295 4- Hannah, b. June 7, 1765; m. Elijah Gridley. 

296 + R0GER, b. Dec. 9, 1767; m. (1) Nancy Smalley; (2) Anne Hathaway.

cy, Earl of Rivers, and came early in the century from Kent to 
New England. They had no children. [Stockbridge Past and 
Present. Miss Elector F. Jones, 1854, p. 126.] 

123. *JOHN (Eliphalet 41 , Eliphalet 9 , John 1 ), b. at Newing- 
ton, Conn., Dec. 23, 1741 ; removed in 1761 with his father 
to New Preston, Conn. Mr. Whittlesey left a diary which was 
in existence in 1856; by its contents we know that he served 
as a servant to his father, Eliphalet 41 , in the Colonial Wars. 
On the 9th of May, 1756, he assisted in forwarding stores from 
Connecticut to Greenbush, opposite Albany, N. Y. At Goshen 
he caught the measles while sleeping in a barn with other sol- 
diers. His discharge shows that he served three years in his 
father's company. [Military Records of the Descendants of 
John Whittlesey and Ruth Dudley, by Col. Chas. Whittlesey.] 
On the 14th of November, 1765, Mr. Whittlesey m. Mary Beale, 
who was born at New Preston, Conn., Aug. 24, 1745. From 
the memoranda left by Mr. Whittlesey, we find that the " spirit 
of the times " and "safety of the people," predominated above 
all else in his mind, and after his placing his farm in such per- 
fect working order, between 1760 and 1775 he gave almost his 
entire attention to protecting the people of his colony. In 1776 
he was called out as private in Captain Tibbets' company ; Aug. 
18 to Sept. 14, 1776, at New York, in Capt. John Hinman's com- 
pany ; Oct. 28th he marched to Stamford, Conn., in Captain 
Moseley's company. Nov. 6th, found the regiment at Horse 
Neck ; Nov. 12th, marched to Rye ; Dec. 2d, was at Saw Pitts, 
under Gen. Wooster ; March 21, 1777, was commissioned ensign 
by Jonathan Trumbull, when he served as such in the regiment 
of Lieut. -Col. N. Parsons. As one of the selectmen of New 
Preston he recruited the quota of men for that society, collected 
and forwarded supplies and ammunition. [Col. Rec. of Conn. 
Conn. Men in the Revolution.] Dec. 3, 1769, Mr. Whittlesey 
consecrated his life to God. A copy of his consecration and 
resolution is here given as taken from his original letter. June 
20, 1779, he made a public profession of his faith. 

" Eternal and ever blessed God, I desire to present myself before thee with 
the deepest humiliation & abasement of soul, sensible how unworthy such a 
sinful worm is to appear before the holy Majesty of Heaven, the king of 
kings and the Lord of Lords, and especially on such an occasion as this, 
t even to enter into a covenant transaction with thee, but the scheme and plan 
is thine own, thine infinite condescention hath offered it by thy Son, and thy 
grace hath inclined my heart to accept it. I come therefore acknowledging 
myself to have been a great offender smiting on my breast, and saying with 
the humble publican, God be merciful to me a sinner. I come invited by the 
name of thy son, and wholly trusting in his perfect riteousness, entreating 
that for his sake thou wilt be merciful to my unrighteousness and wilt no 
more remember my sins. Receive, I beseech thee, thy revolted creature 
who is now convinced of thy right to him, and desires nothing so much as 
that he may be thine. This day do I, with the utmost solemnity, surrender 



72 WHITTLESEY GENEALOGY. 

myself to thee. I renounce all former lords that have had dominion over me. 
and I consecrate to thee all that I have, and all that I am. The faculties of 
my mind, the members of my body, my worldly possessions my time and my 
influence over others to be all and entirely for thy glory, and resolutely em- 
ployed in obedience to thy command as long as thou continuest in me life . 
With an ardent desire, and a humble resolution to continue thine, through 
all the endless ages of eternity, ever holding myself in an attentive posture 
to observe the first intimations of thy will, and ready to spring forward with 
zeal and joy to the immediate execution of it. To thy direction also I resign 
myself and all I have and am, to be disposed of by thee in such a manner as 
thou shalt, in thine infinite wisdom judge most subservient to the purposes 
of thy glory. To thee I leave the management of all events and say, with- 
out reserve not my will, but thine be done, rejoicing with a loyal heart in 
thine unlimited government as what ought to be the delight of the whole 
rational creation. Use me O Lord, I beseech thee, as an instrument of thy 
service. Number me among thy peculiar people, let me be washed in the 
blood of thy dear Son ; let me be clothed with his riteousness, let me be 
sanctified by his spirit. Transform me more and more unto his image, impart 
to me, through him, all needful influence of thy purifying, cheering and com- 
forting Spirit, and let my life be spent under those influences, and in the 
light of thy gracious countenance, as my Father and my God, and when the 
solemn hour of Death comes, may I remember this thy covenant, well 
ordered in all things and sure, as all my salvation and all my desire, tho' 
every other hope and enjoyment is perishing, and do thou, O Lord remem- 
ber it too. Look down with pity, O my heavenly father, on thy languishing 
dying child — embrace me in thine everlasting arms, put strength and confi- 
dence in my departing spirit, and receive it to the abodes of them, that sleep 
in Jesus, peacefully and joyfully to wait the accomplishment of thy great 
promise to all thy people, even of a glorious resurrection and of eternal hap- 
piness in thine heavenly presence. And if any surviving friend should, 
when I am in the dust, meet with this memorial of my solemn transactions 
with thee, may he make the engagement his own — and do thou graciously 
admit him to partake in all the blessings of thy covenant through Jesus, the 
great mediator of it. To whom with thee, O Father, and thy Holy Spirit be 
everlasting praise, ascribed by all the millions who are thus saved by thee 
and by all those other Celestial Spirits in whose work and blessedness thou 
shalt call them to share. Amen.

He made a public profession June 20, 1779." 

After the Revolution Mr. Whittlesey was a justice of the 
peace, and was re-elected to the Connecticut Legislature for 
seventeen consecutive sessions, and was also a member of the 
Committee of Safety. He was chosen deacon of the church in 
1784, but declined to act; was chosen and made a member of the 
convention to ratify the Constitution of the United States, for 
which he gave his vote Jan. 3, 1788. Mr. and Mrs. Whittlesey 
removed to Salisbury, Conn., in 1792. Salisbury was then a

MEMORANDA. 

An effort was made one night by the Tories to capture Ensign 
Whittlesey at his house on the Shepaug. They called him out of 
his bed, pretending to have lost their way. Knowing them by 
their voices, Mr. Whittlesey took his gun, opened the door, and 
invited them to come in. They concluded to find their route with- 
out his assistance, and made haste to get away. Such was the 
courage of Mr. Whittlesey. [Military record of descent of John 
Whittlesey and Ruth Dudley.] There are many anecdotes rela- 
ted of his personal influence over the pioneers of Salisbury, which 
often took the form of authority. The following is a copy of the 
commission of ensign given to Mr. Whittlesey, by which he served 
in the war of the Revolution : 

Jonathan Trumbull, Esquire, 
Captain-General and Commander in Chief, of the State of 
Connecticut in America. 
To John Whittlesey, Gent. Greeting: 

You being, by the Govenor and Council of Safety, accepted and ap- 
pointed to be Ensign of the Tenth Company of the Alarm List, in the 13th 
Regiment of Militia in said State; reposing special Trust and Confidence in

this State, me thereunto enabling, appoint and impower You the said John 
Whittlesey to be Ensign of said Company; You are therefore carefully and 
diligently to discharge the Duty of an Ensign in Leading, Ordering, and 
Exercising the said Company in Arms, both inferior Officers and Soldeers, 
and to keep them in good Order, and see that they are armed and equipped,

obey you, as their Ensign, and yourself to observe and follow such Orders, 
and Instructions as you shall from Time to Time receive from me, or the

rior Officers, according to the Rules and Discipline of War, ordained and 
established by the Laws of the State aforesaid, persuant to the Trust here- 
by reposed in you.

to the house of John Whittlesey, Esq., in the northeastern corner of 
Salisbury. The mountains were covered with snow." [Dwight's

124. Major and Mrs. William Cogswell lived in a house stand- 
ing in 1897, the residence of a lineal descendant, Mr. Gould Camp 
Whittlesey, located at the junction of several cross roads on the 
line of travel to New York, West Point, Hartford, Boston, and 
other large towns. 

Maj. William Cogswell was the first to initiate revolutionary 
measures in resistance of English oppression. He was justice of 
the peace, major in the State militia, captain in the Army of the 
Revolution, promoted to rank of major in May, 1781. He was in 
command under Gen. George Washington in the retreat from 
Long Island. He died in the prime of life, leaving a widow and 
nine children. Built Cogswell tavern. His estate was large.

Mrs. Cogswell d. June 2, 1676. 

General Washington and many of the principal officers of the 
Revolution were at different times entertained at Maj. Cogswell's 
tavern, and soldiers by the scores and hundreds. When the 
treason of Arnold was communicated to Washington, and he was 
at a point where he must pass through New Preston, early the 
next morning he dispatched a page, who was dressed in yellow 
flannel, to Maj. Cogswell's to have breakfast ready promptly at six 
o'clock. He reached there at that time and gave his suite fifteen 
minutes for breakfast. Washington's agitation was such that he 
himself did not sit down, but took a bowl of milk and walked the 
room while eating. 

One morning after the previous day's fatigue the cooks were 
sitting down to breakfast, and one said, " I hope we shall be per- 
mitted to eat in peace for once." Just then an officer came gallop- 
ing up announcing that three hundred soldiers wanted breakfast 
at once. 

Maj. Cogswell was much from home during the war, and his 
wife was left to manage the affairs in his absence. It is said of 
the Tories who lived in the neighborhood that, in the absence of 
Maj. Cogswell, they would say, " News has just come that Maj. 
Cogswell is dead; he was killed in the last battle; and now is a 
good time for Tories." More than once, sick of their impertinence, 
she armed herself with a chain and cleared the house in quick 
time. In later life she was wont to say, " I never feared a Tory." 

As a magistrate Maj. Cogswell sometimes married people. A 
couple from the old country, whom he had married not long 
before, came into his yard one day and wished to be unmarried. 
He said, "I'll do it." They stood near by a block and cleaver. 
(i Here," he said, " whichever of you wishes to be unmarried, put 
your head on this block and I will cut it off; that will do it." 
They stared at him, then looked at each other, and at last one of 
them timidly asked, "Is there no other way?" He said, " No." 
They concluded not to be unmarried.

Eliphalet removed with his wife to Stockbridge, Mass.,

the War of the Revolution was reaching its crisis, and Comfort, 
realizing the necessity of her husband's presence with those 
who were to save the honor of their country, assisted her hus- 
band in constructing their house by carrying the plaster for the 
chimney, and also by plastering one of the rooms, so that it 
would be sufficiently completed before cold weather set in, that 
Eliphalet could join the regiment. Having no glass for her 
window frames, Comfort oiled paper for her windows, and Eliph- 
alet went to serve his country and honor. Stockbridge was 
then in the wilds of Massachusetts, and frequent incursions 
were made by the Indians, so that she had not only a lonely but 
dangerous and anxious time of waiting. Eliphalet served in

of the 13th Regiment of Connecticut Colony Military, 8 companies 
of which belonged to ancient Woodbury. This regiment was sub- 
ject to calls for short terms at any and all times of alarm, as at 
Danbury and White Plains. The Colonels kept duplicates of the 
pay rolls of these terms of service. I copied from these rolls a 
large number of the names of those who served for my roll of men, 
who enlisted from ancient Woodbury, and printed them in the list

128. *ASAPH (Eliphalet 41 , Eliphalet 9 , John 1 ), b. at New- 
ington, Conn., May 12, 1753 ; he m. Oct. 25, 1775, Abigail 
Skeels, who was bap. at New Milford, Aug. 31, 1755. 

Oct. 25, 1775, the General Assembly commissioned Asaph 
Whittlesey to be Ensign of the Third company or Trainband 
in the 24th Regiment of this colony. [Colony of Conn. Rec- 
ords.] In May, 1777, he was commissioned Captain of the same 
company and regiment in this state. This company was raised 
at Plymouth for the state service in the Wyoming Valley, which 
occurred on the Susquehannah River above Wilkesbarre, Pa., 
in July, 1778, an event well known wherever Campbell's poem 
" Gertrude of Wyoming " has been read. Few death scenes and 
few conflicts embrace so many horrible details. The Confeder- 
ate Congress paid little attention to the frontier settlers of the 
valley, partly from the want of troops, and in part because they 
were regarded by the Pennsylvanians as intruders. The state 
had a claim to so much of the colony of Pennsylvania as lies 
north of the 41st parallel of north latitude. She had issued 
land script to her citizens and soldiers who located there and 
organized a county which was republican in the Assembly. As 
soon as spring opened in the year of 1778, the British tories 
and Indians from the north began to harass this isolated col- 
ony. The usual distress of the border settlements occurred. 
Here persons were fired upon from the woods, and, if killed, were 
scalped and mutilated. The settlement had furnished two com- 
panies to the Continental army. Self-defense being the highest 
law of our nature, the officers of one company resigned ; most of 
the privates deserted and hastened home to protect their sub- 
stance and their families. In May the enemy had collected 
their forces at Elmira, N. Y., under the command of Col. John 
Butler, Col. John Johnson, and Thayendanegea or Brandt. As 
usual in Indian wars, there was to every group of families a sta- 
tion or block house, often called a fort, where they collected in 
case of alarm. The uppermost station was known as Fort Jen- 
kins, which was captured by the British under Col. John Butler, 
on the 2d of July. Left to their own resources, the militia and 
all citizens who w r ere able to fight assembled at a station a few 
miles below on the west bank of the river known as " Forty 
Fort." Capt. Hewett and his absconding continentals, Capt. 
Asaph Whittlesey and forty-four men from Plymouth, and four 
other companies from the local militia, represented about three 
hundred men who were organized as a battalion. Col. Zebulon 
Butler was placed in command with Col. Dennison, Col. Durkee, 
and Lient.-Col. Dorrance as field officers. The company, 
officers, and most of the men were clamorous for an advance. 
With the excitement contrary to their judgment the field officers 
were overruled. A forward movement took place immediately, 
and about noon the enemy was found near Fort Wintermont. 



So WHITTLESEY GENEALOGY. 

Col. Zebulon Butler formed his line of battle at right angles to 
the river, its right near the bank. They advanced, firing 
occasionally, until within one hundred yards of the British line, 
which lay flat upon the ground according to Indian tactics, and 
did not return fire. Brandt was not present. Captain Whittle- 
sey occupied the extreme left at a swamp, in front of which 
Gienwahtoh, a Seneca chief, had the position suited to his savage 
troops. He begged of the British commander to be allowed to 
raise the war whoop and fall upon the flank. At this moment 
the crack of their guns and the infernal yell of his Indians rang 
through the woods. The British and tories rising, joined the 
attack. There were already Indian scouts well around toward 
the rear of both flanks. Col. Dennison, who commanded the 
left, directed Capt. Whittlesey to change front to rear in order 
to face Gienwahtoh ; but some of his men regarded it as a re- 
treat, confusion was inevitable, and the savages at once pressed 
up to the disorganized mass. To this time the Americans were 
making a serious impression on the British lines with a good 
prospect of success. The officers appear to have behaved with 
uncommon courage and energy. Their men still continued fight- 
ing, well knowing the desperate consequences of defeat. Every 
company lost its captain. Ammunition, as usual, in such en- 
gagements, began to fail, a disorderly retreat commenced about 
four o'clock, p. m., followed by one of those human butcheries 
which are not common in war, and which has not yet ceased to 
shock mankind. The tories, many of them from Pennsylvania 
and New Jersey, personal acquaintances and often relatives of 
the settlers, exhibited more of the savage than the savages them- 
selves. With Indians scalping, mutilation, and torture, are a 
part of the usages of war. The fugitives running and skulking 
through the forest were tomahawked, maimed, and murdered 
until the sun went down. Fortunate were those who fell dead on 
the line of battle, for they were insensible to torture and the 
insults put upon their bodies by allies of Great Britain. Two 
hundred and twenty-seven were killed or murdered, five saved 
as prisoners, and one hundred and forty escaped. How many 
were made orphans and widows on that day in the beautiful 
valley of Wyoming with the distress of soul and body that fol- 
lowed, are subjects not belonging to statistics, but to the imagi- 
nation. Forced to its utmost capacity we shall fail to conceive 
the full measure of their sorrows. Most of the houses were 
burned, their crops destroyed, and their horses and cattle taken 
by the enemy. To them there was only left a choice of dis- 
persion or starvation. [Military Records of descend, of John 
Whittlesey and Ruth Dudley.] Captain Whittlesey d. at the

resided on State street. A newspaper of New Haven announced 
June 13, 1786, as follows : " At a late city meeting John Chan- 
dler was elected sheriff." When the War of the Revolution 
broke out Mr. Chandler had prospects of success in business, 
but soon his father's family took sides with the adherents of 
their King and left New Haven, he alone remaining. But he 
felt wounded, and the unjust suspicions of the Whigs, and that 
a certain degree of disloyalty would be attached to him on 
account of the course taken by the rest of his family ; he was a 
man of great pride and ambition, but the breaking up of society 
and his family discouraged him. His success in business must 
have been small, for his family was broken up and his third 
child taken from home by her maternal grandmother so young 
and kept away so long and persistently that there were born to 
her five brothers and sisters of whom she could not, at one time, 
say that she had seen either of them, although living in the

MEMORANDA. 

I'he Story of the Whittlesey Piano," by Miss Karolyn B. 
Whittlesey. No. 1144: 

• rhe Rev. John Whittlesey would not allow his boys to study 
music, although he himself was fond of music, and in latter days 
allowed his boys to give him instruction, enabling him to play his 
own accompaniments, for both he and his wife, Sally, had remark- 
ably hne voices. The boys, Orramel. John, and Henry, were, how- 
ever, bound to study music, and study music they did, the Rev. 
John finally consenting to their practising and studying nights. 
Their lessons were taken in Xew London, a city thirteen miles dis- 
tant from Salem. Their habit was to start from Salem about 

9 p. m. New London was reached about 11.30, their lessons finished 
at 1.20 a. m., and then starting for Salem, they arrived near 4 a.m., 
and after an hour's sleep commenced work at 5.30 a. m. They 
took but one lesson a week, but kept this up for two or three 
years. Their practice commenced at 8 p. m., the piano being in an 
outside building away from the house, disturbing no one. If 
Orramel had from 8 to 10 one evening for practice, he took from 

10 to 12 the second evening, and from 12 to 2 a.m., the third. In 
this way each had a full night's rest once in three. 

" They gave several hours' study each week to ' Theory.' The 
piano they used was a very small, old-fashioned instrument of four 
or five octaves, with small stick legs, and a brass rod for a pedal, 
at the left hand side of the rack, the pedal being used with the 
hand. The piano was purchased with the savings of many months' 
wages, and was used in common. There was no other piano for 
miles around. The time came when the boys felt that they must 
start out in the world, and two of them decided to go to Xew 
York (it is not remembered which two). How about the piano ? 
After much anxious consultation they came to the conclusion to 
make a piano ! They took the one they had apart and began to 
fashion one like it. Before the winter was over they had a second 
piano, quite as good as the first, which the Xew York boys took 
with them to that city, leaving the first piano with the one who 
remained at home in Salem. The second piano gave very good 
satisfaction, but one day when the boys were all together, they 
thought an improvement, perhaps several, could be made on the 
first instrument. As their fashion was, the decision was no sooner 
made than acted upon. They immediately employed all their 
evenings in successful and unsuccessful attempts, till at last they 
were rewarded by having what they considered quite a superior 
instrument. Then for the first time the thought struck them, 
• We can manufacture for ourselves.' They picked up traps, came 
back to Salem, built a shop, and commenced work. To their sur- 
prise the piano sold. In a few years, among their apprentices 
appeared a Henry J. Newton of Xew York city, who, after 'learn- 



WHITTLESEY GENEALOGY. gy 

ing his trade,' returned to that city and set up an establishment 
for himself, paying the Whittleseys a big bonus for their name. 
In a few years, however, he took in a partner from New York by 
the name of Light, and the firm became Light & Newton. New- 
ton made an independent fortune and retired. Light took in a 
Mr. Bradbury. Light also acquired wealth and left the firm, and 
now the piano stands ' Bradbury,' although F. C. Smith has the 
handling of it. 

" The Whittlesey Brothers still continued to manufacture till 
John moved West to Delaware, Ohio, and Henry moved to Niantic, 
Conn. Orramel had some years before this left the firm and given 
his attention to politics, his school, ' Music Vale Seminary,' and 
his farm. 

" The Whittlesey piano was used at Music Vale, and there are 
several of them still standing in the old building. The boys were 
not proud of their first attempt, and they often said, 'I wish we 
could get hold of all those first pianos and burn them up, they 
injure us.' 

." Henry Whittlesey had the most mechanical skill of any of the 
brothers. He invented a machine for winding the brass strings 
and one for cutting and placing several wires at once on their 
keys. These two machines, with improvements, are extensively 
used this day."

expressing the deep regret felt by the Bar on occasion of the 
decease of their late lamented associate and friend, Matthew B. 
Whittlesey, Esq. The said committee after a brief interval 
reported the following resolutions, which, upon consideration, 
were unanimously adopted : 

Resolved, That we have received with deep regret information of the 
death of the venerable Matthew B. Whittlesey, Esq., who, for many years, 
presided at our meetings as the senior member of this Bar, and was ever one 
of our most valuable and esteemed associates. 

Resolved, That his amiable deportment, his great firmness of purpose, 
and his unblemished integrity, had justly acquired for him the regard and 
respect of the community, and more especially of the profession, who were 
most intimately associated with him. and of the Judicial Tribunals, before 
which he was a highly respectable advocate, and insure that his name and 
character will long be remembered and respected. 

Resolved, That we sympathize with the family of the deceased in the 
loss which they have sustained, and that a copy of these resolutions be com- 
municated to them by the secretary. 

Resolved, That this Bar will attend the funeral of the deceased at two 
o'clock this (Tuesday) afternoon, and that his Honor, the Presiding Judge, 
the jury attending the court, be respectfully invited to unite with us in pay- 
ing this last tribute of respect to the memory of our departed friend. 

Resolved, That these resolutions be signed by the chairman and secre- 
tary, and be published in the newspapers. 

Signed, 

Signed, Charles Hawley,

Afterward, and at the opening of the court in the afternoon of the same 
day, Mr. Hawley announced the intelligence to the court, and communicated 
the foregoing proceedings, and moved that the court do now adjourn. 
Judge Waite responded in a few brief but appropriate and eloquent remarks, 
and directed the court to be adjourned accordingly

Secy. 
[Whittlesey Memorials.] 

Thomas Day of Hartford, Conn., said the deceased was one 
of the best specimens of the old school, not only in costume 
but in mind and manners. 

The venerable widow of the late Matthew Beale Whittlesey, 
Esq. (Mrs. Caroline H. Whittlesey), came to a sudden and 
shocking death on Sabbath evening, Jan. 23, 1848, by burning. 
She had retired to her room, and had put on her night clothes, 
and it is supposed that she had been reading a newspaper, and 
that thus engaged it came in contact with the flame of the 
lamp, that she threw the paper down, and attempted to smother 
the blaze with her foot, and that in the effort her clothes took 
fire and she was enveloped in flames. These reached to the ceil- 
ing at the time other members of the family reached her room. 
She was dreadfully burned and lived but ten hours after the 
accident. The event caused great sensation in Danbury, where 
the deceased was so generally known and highly respected. 

The departure of these aged friends is felt to be a serious 
loss, both in the circle of numerous afflicted relatives, and in the 
church of which they were exemplary and highly esteemed 
members. Mr. Whittlesey had long been favorably known in 
public life as a man of stern integrity, sound discretion, and 
skill in his profession. About the time of his retiring from 
business he made a public profession of religion, which for six- 
teen years he honored by a consistent Christian life. But it is 
remarkable that from the very time of his becoming the head of 
a family — many years before his conversion, he ever maintained 
religious worship in his house. He was an example of the man- 
ner and principles of a more nearly Puritan age than the present, 
for which he entertained a profound reverence. His death is 
for this cause the more melancholy to the admirers of olden 
times, as it sunders one of the last links of these attachments. 
But to himself it was doubtless a most blessed change, and he 
passed through it with calm radiance of a setting sun, without a 
cloud, to shine again in endless days. For nearly three months 
did his bereaved companion wait, till her change also came. 
She had been for the last time to the sanctuary the day before 
her death. She had spent the Sabbath evening in the cheerful 
society of her friends, and even made arrangements to attend 
during the week a female prayer meeting, which she dearly 
loved, but she was to meet in a nobler worship, there where 
prayer is changed to praise, lire she returned that night she

had indeed cause to know that her time was near. With sur- 
prising suddenness her summons came, and when the next day 
closed she passed away to join the departed friends in glory and 
be forever with the Lord. We mourn the absence of her bright 
example and her fervent spirit here, but we rejoice with her 
that she now beholds her Father's face and is satisfied to awake 
with his likeness. [N. Y. Observer.]

Washington, Conn., Jan. 11, 1767. Mr. Whittlesey "was a 
farmer, prudent, industrious, and economical. He, however, 
never was ambitious to obtain earthly wealth, but his great 
object was to lay up treasures in heaven. He was among the 
foremost in promoting the objects of benevolence, morality, and 
religion. He fed the hungry, clothed the naked, and eased the 
hearts of the disconsolate by his kind attention, advice, and 
prayers. His attendance on business of the town, or society or 
ecclesiastical meetings, was punctual and uniform. The moment 
designated found him at his post. His residence was near five 
miles from the meeting-house, and, to enable the destitute and 
to encourage the slothful and careless to attend to hear the 
Gospel preached, he provided a large wagon to convey eight or 
ten persons, and before it reached the meeting-house it was 
generally filled with widows and orphans. The clergy found 
his house open for their reception, with an abundance to sup- 
ply their wants. He was so esteemed and beloved by all ranks, 
ages, and classes as to be generally designated by the familiar 
and affectionate relationship of Uncle John." [WTiittlesey Memo-

and Mary Beale Whittlesey, by Rev. Jeremiah Day of Wash- 
ington, Conn, (afterwards president of Yale College), two of the 
best known of the ancient families of that town were united. 
The marriage took place at Salisbury, Conn., on the 25th of 
September, 1792. Thither the parents of the bride had re- 
moved about 1784, and in 1805 she and her husband and five 
children followed them and found a home on the banks of the 
Housatonic river, in the northeast part of Salisbury, in the val- 
ley of Weatogue. The farm extended from the river to the Twin 
lakes on the west, and was about three miles from her father's 
homestead. The father and mother of the Weatogue home were 
excellent examples of the post-colonial farmer proprietors of 
New F2ngland. Here they improved the hundred-acre farm,

planted orchards around the house, built a new house on the 
new road to Sheffield, held open doors to all visitors, exercised 
notably all the neighborly functions of those days in sickness 
.and in health, closing each day with household prayer, and not 
missing a Sunday service in fifty years, although the meeting- 
house was four miles from home and Smith's hill and Frink's 
hill lay high between. Here they reared a family of seven chil- 
dren, two of the sons graduating with high honors at Union 
College, and two of the daughters being trained for teaching. To 
. their grandchildren the old Weatogue homestead was an Eden of 
pure country delights. To portray the dear familiar place as it 
used to be in the years just before the Civil War, half hid among 
the maples, flanked by orchards that were flanked in turn by 
groves of oak and chestnut, in front the green meadows reach- 
ing to the picturesque river, in the center the old-fashioned 
white house, with green blinds ; the bee-haunted garden, yellow 
with daffodils in spring and with " Golden Sweets " in autumn; 
the wide-doored barn and cosy stack-yards, the granaries, and 
wood piles ; the great kitchen inside, with its broad, open fire- 
place, whose white hearth was bright with the cheer of many a 
Thanksgiving day and winter evening, with its smooth-shelved 
pantry, savory with cream and curds, and with cheeses ranged 
in goodly rows, every room free to the romping grandchildren, 
from the cool, roomy cellar, lined with bins and barrels, to the 
all-gathering garret paradise of Paradise for rainy days (ah! 
jewels of memory!) — to embalm all these would be, indeed, to 
any of those grandchildren a real "labor of love," but one that 
would take too much space for this book of genealogy. Of 
their personal traits it has been truly said " that the mother's 
long life of cheerful activity and bright intelligence was a con- 
stant benediction of sunshine and gentleness," and that the 
father's "good fellowship and racy shrewdness " — (he was a for- 
midable athlete in his youth in the county wrestling matches, 
and a quaint story-teller in his old age) — "would afford another 
of the thousand refutations of the popular modern misconcep- 
tions of the true character of the old-fashioned New Englander." 
About such a hearth clustered all the social, domestic, and civic 
virtues. 

Soon after their deaths, in 1856, the following most just 
tribute was published by their lifelong friend and townsman, 
Rev. Jonathan Lee : 

" Died at Salisbury, Conn., Oct. 9th, Nathaniel P. Averill, aged 
86, and Mary W., his wife, the 3d of August preceding, aged 85. 
They were born in Washington, New Preston Society, and lived in 
the marriage relation sixty-four years. They had been members 
of the Congregational Church in Salisbury forty years. They 
walked together as heirs of the grace of life, discharging with 
tender affection and assiduity, with untiring industry and fidelity,

the duties of parents, making their home the dwelling of the 
warmest filial love and friendship, where heart beat responsive to 
heart in the mutual joys and sorrows of early and mature life. 
They were eminently given to hospitality, and with much delight 
welcomed the visits of ministers and Christian acquaintances to 
the end of their days. They happily exemplified the Christian 
character in all the relations of life, and secured the esteem and 
respect of the community in which they lived, while as workers 
with the friends of Zion they strengthened their hands and encour- 
aged their hearts in every good work. Not far separated, in point 
of time, at birth and at death, they now sleep in Jesus, and their 
redeemed spirits, after a lengthened pilgrimage, are with Him to 
behold His glory."

remarkable activity and a fine flow of spirits. Salisbury was a

nearly new settlement, and his opportunities for education were 
anything but what he desired. His physical endurance was very 
great, but an accident which occurred just before he became of 
age, impaired his health and crippled him for life. An older 
brother and he were chopping in the woods, when one of the 
trees fell upon him, striking him upon the back of the neck. 
For some time it was thought he was dead and his back broken. 
This accident so impaired his ability to labor, that it changed 
the course of his life. He removed to Southington, Conn., and 
entered into partnership with his brother Chester, as a mer- 
chant. Nov. 26, 1807, m. at Southington, Conn., Vesta Hart, 
b. at Southington, May 16, 1789 [See Mem.], the daughter of 
Col. Samuel Hart, who lived under the shadow of the moun- 
tains in the western part of Southington. In person, she was 
small, active, and pretty. Her physique was not of the hardy 
material required for the hard life of new settlements. Her dis- 
position was cheerful, and manners attractive. She received the 
best advantages of early education which a thriving New Eng- 
land town afforded, in the years following the Revolution, in 
which she afterwards taught three seasons. She was happy in 
correspondence from her early youth. Quite a voluminous 
diary is in existence, covering nearly twenty years of her life, 
which is the best example of her felicity in composition, because 
it was written without premeditation or restraint. No one who 
had personal intercourse with her could doubt the genuineness 
of her piety. 

In July, 18 1 2, Asaph came to Tallmadge, O., made a contract 
for a piece of land at the center, cleared a small part, sowed it 
to wheat, and then returned to Southington for his family. In 
the spring of 1813, he started for Ohio with his wife Vesta and 
two children, Charles and Samuel. On their departure, their 
neighbors gathered as if to bid them farewell forever, and their 
good pastor tearfully commended them to God. They made 
their journey in a four-horse wagon, taking the southern route 
by way of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, a journey at the time 
full of trials and hardships. War was then raging in the West. 
Their neighbors looked upon them with forebodings that they 
might be the doomed victims of the tomahawk and scalping 
knife. In passing "the narrows " between Pittsburgh and Bea- 
ver, their wagon run off a steep embankment, and turned com- 
pletely over, so that the wheels were uppermost. His wife and 
children were beneath the load. Their groans and stifled 
cries were growing weaker and more faint, when, by a desperate 
and almost superhuman effort, he succeeded in raising the wagon 
and load alone, sufficiently to remove some boxes that lay upon 
Mrs. Whittlesey. She and the children were rescued, but the 
injuries received impaired her health for the remainder of her 
life. They were detained some days in consequence of this acci- 



WHITTLESEY GENEALOGY. 119 

dent, and did not reach Tallmadge, O., until July (18 13), where 
they were received by the inhabitants with great kindness. Mr. 
Whittlesey was soon after elected Justice of the Peace, an office 
which he held nearly to the close of his life. In 18 14, a post- 
office was established in Tallmadge, and he was at once appointed 
postmaster, a place which he held until his death. In 18 16, 
Mr. Whittlesey met with another accident which lamed him for 
life. At the raising of the log house of Reuben Beach, one of 
the timbers fell, and grazing his back threw him down with 
such violence to break his. thigh bone. The injury received at 
Salisbury had always affected his strength, and the broken limb 
was never restored. The united effects of these injuries cur- 
tailed the amount of labor he was to perform the remainder of 
his life in spite of his strong constitution and unflinching will. 
He started a small store, purchasing goods in Pittsburgh and 
bringing them in wagons to Tallmadge ; he also carried on an 
ashery. In 18 18, he embarked in the manufacture of iron, 
erecting a forge and four refinery fires in Little Cuyahoga. 
[Western Reserve. Hist. Soc. Pamphlets, 1886.] Owing to 
tariff reductions and no cash payments in 1824, he returned to 
his farm. In 1825, elected one of the commissioners of the 
County of Portage, after which he returned to his farm and 
family, where he found that repose so congenial to his nature. 
[Life of Asaph Whittlesey, by Col. Chas. Whittlesey, his son, 
1886.] The severe labor and trials of a frontier life had brought 
upon Mrs. Whittlesey premature gray hairs and other evidences 
of a broken constitution. She went to her rest with* perfect 
resignation, in the fullest confidence of a happy future. Her 

last words were : " Tell I charge him to meet me at the 

throne of God," and her spirit departed Dec. 20, 1835. On the 
4th day of May, 1836, Mr. Whittlesey m. Mrs. Susan (Fitch)

He d. in 1833. Mrs. Everett was a woman of exceptional char- 
acter with a native good will and of practical benevolence. Mr. 
Whittlesey closed his long and useful career on the 17th of 
March, 1842, on the farm which he first purchased in Tallmadge, 
O. He was by nature and association a person of good habits 
and religiously inclined ; he became a deacon in the church. 
He was active and judicious, fearing the rebuke of no man, when 
he believed he was right. He never yielded to policy or expe- 
diency. He was a man of strong mind, strong feelings, strong 
prejudices, strong affections, and strong attachments, yet the 
whole was tempered with a strong sense of justice and strong 
religious feelings. His last words were : " It is a great thing to 
die." 

In 1844, Mrs. Susan Whittlesey removed to Sharon, Medina

parted this life Feb. 18, 187 1, in Tallmadge, O. " She was as 
nearly a Christian as it is possible for mortals to be." 

The children were by the first marriage of Mr. Whittlesey to 
Vesta Hart: 

693. COLONEL CHARLES WHITTLESEY (Asaph 309 , 
John 123 , Eliphalet 41 , Eliphalet 9 , John 1 ) was trained to the profes- 
sion of arms, and has a military record of which he may well be 
proud. It is not on the field of battle that he has won the 
honors he prizes most, but in the broader field of science. It is 
among the heroes who have achieved distinction in grappling 
with the mysteries of nature, and who have developed means for 
making life more useful and comfortable, that Colonel Whit- 
tlesey would have preferred taking position rather than among 
those whose distinction comes more of destruction than con- 
struction or production. But the exigencies of this work prevent 
the formation of a distinct scientific department, and the mili- 
tary services of Colonel Whittlesey have been such that he could 
not, without injustice, be omitted from this department of our 
work. 

Charles Whittlesey was b. in Southington, Conn., about mid- 
night of Oct. 4-5, 1808, being the firstborn of Asaph and Vesta. 
When four years old he was sent to the old red schoolhouse, 
"to be out of harm's way," while his father was in the Ohio 
wilderness exploring for a home. The location was found, and 
in 1 81 3 the family removed to Tallmadge, Summit County, 
Ohio. Then the young boy trudged from home to the log 
schoolhouse, south of Tallmadge Center, until 18 19. When 
the frame academy was finished, the eleven-years-old lad at- 
tended school in the new building during the winter, and in 
the summer worked on the farm. This mode of life continued 
until 1827, when he was appointed a cadet at West Point. Dur- 
ing his second year at West Point a fiery Southerner made a 
personal assault upon a superior officer, the military punishment 
for which was death. He was condemned by a court-martial to 
be shot. While the sentence was being forwarded to Washing- 
ton for approval, the culprit was confined in the cadet prison 
without irons. Cadet Whittlesey was one evening on. post at 
the door of the prison, and as he passed on his beat, his back 
being for a moment towards the door, the prisoner, who was a 
powerful man, sprang out and seized the sentinel's musket from 
behind. At the same instant the muzzle of a pistol was pre- 
sented to the ear of the young cadet, with an admonition to 
keep quiet. This, however, did not prevent him from calling 
lustily for the corporal of the guard. With usual activity he 
sprang forward, and the scion of chivalry ran. The guns of the 
sentinels were not loaded, and the escaping prisoner could not, 



WHITTLESEY GENEALOGY. 121 

therefore, be shot ; but in the pursuit by Cadet Whittlesey, he 
had nearly planted a bayonet in his back when the guard seized 
him. 

Mr. Whittlesey graduated in 183 1, and became brevet second 
lieutenant in the Fifth United States Infantry, and in Novem- 
ber started to join his regiment at Mackinaw. He did duty 
through the winter with the garrison at Fort Gratiot. In the 
spring he was assigned to Green Bay to the company of Cap- 
tan Martin Scott, so famous as a shot. At the close of the 
Black Hawk war he resigned from the army ; but later he 
tendered his services to the government during the Seminole 
and Mexican wars. He then opened a law office in Cleve- 
land, Ohio, and was a part owner and co-editor of the Whig 
and Herald until 1837, when he was appointed assistant geolo- 
gist of the State of Ohio. Great and permanent good resulted 
to the material wealth of the State in the disclosure of the 
rich coal and iron deposits in Eastern Ohio, thus laying the 
foundation for the vast manufacturing industries which have 
made that portion of the State populous and prosperous. At 
this time he carefully examined and measured several works of 
the mound builders, and his plans and notes of twenty of these 
remains were embodied in " Davis & Squires' American Monu- 
ments of the Mississippi Valley" (Washington, 1848). From 
1847 till 185 1 he was engaged by the United States government in 
making mineralogical and geological survey of the region above 
Lake Superior and the upper Mississippi. In 1849, I ^S°> an< ^ 
1858 he explored the valley of Menominee river from its mouth 
to the Brule. His reports were published in 1865. In 1858, 
1859, and i860 the State of Wisconsin secured his services 
upon the geological survey of that State. In 1861 he aban- 
doned this employment at the first signs of civil war, and be- 
came a member of one of the military companies that tendered 
its services to President-elect Lincoln when he was first threat- 
ened in February, 1861. Two days after the proclamation of 
April 15, 1861, he joined the governor's staff as assistant quar- 
termaster-general. He served in the field in West Virginia 
with the three-months men as State military engineer with the 
Ohio troops under Generals McClellan, Cox, and Hill. At Seary 
Run, on the Kanawha, July 17, 1861, he distinguished himself 
by intrepidity and coolness during a severe engagement, in 
which his horse was shot under him. At the expiration of this 
service, Aug. 15, 1861, he was appointed colonel of the 20th 
regiment Ohio volunteers, and detailed by Gen. Mitchell as 
chief engineer of the department of Ohio, where he planned 
and constructed the defenses of Cincinnati. In Dec, 1861, he 
was ordered to Ky. with four companies of infantry to suppress 
the rebel element in several counties. Col. Whittlesey was in 
command of his regiment at the taking of Fort Donaldson, and 



122 WHITTLESEY GENEALOGY. 

was sent North with the prisoners, of whom over ten thousand 
five hundred were committed to him. In April, 1862, on the 
second day of the battle of Shiloh, Col. Whittlesey commanded 
the 3d brigade of Gen. Wallace's division, the 20th, 56th, and 
78th Ohio regiments : " It was against the line of that brigade 
that Gen. Beauregard attempted to throw the whole weight of 
his force for a last desperate charge, but he was driven back by 
the terrible fire that his men were unable to face." Col. 
Whittlesey was fortunate in escaping with his life, for, Gen. 
Force says : " It was ascertained that the rebels had been 
deliberately firing at him, sometimes waiting to get a line shot." 
Col. Whittlesey had for some time been in bad health and con- 
templating resignation, but deferring it for a decisive battle. 
Regarding this battle as virtually closing the campaign in the 
Southwest, and believing the Rebellion to be near its end, he 
sent it in. Gen. Grant endorsed his application : " We cannot 
afford to lose so good an officer," April 12, 1862. Col. Whit- 
tlesey very soon turned his attention again to explorations in 
the Lake Superior and upper Mississippi basins. New additions 
to the mineral wealth of the country were the result of his sur- 
veys and researches. He prognosticated, as early as 1848, that 
the vast prairies of the Northwest would in time become the 
great wheat region. In 1866, Col. Whittlesey with about 
twenty other citizens formed the Western Reserve Historical 
Society, of which he for many years was the presiding officer 
and its element of success. During the last few years of his 
life, although he had become afflicted with rheumatism and 
other disorders, he added many interesting numbers to his 
already valuable publications that have not only served readers 
among the populous, but the country in which he lived and 
fought, and d. on Monday morning, Oct. 17, 1886. [Pamphlet

[The following letters were first published in one of Col. Charles Whittlesey's pamphlets.] 

Fragment of partially destroyed letter written from Canfield, 
Mahoning co., in June or July, 1813, to some friend at Southing- 
ton, Conn., by Vesta Hart Whittlesey: 

" In some way, Mr. W. knows not how, he got us all out before any as- 
sistance could be had We had concluded we could not live five minutes 
longer. This scene of distress you cannot, indeed, I hope you will not try 
to, realize. We thought for sometime my darling Samuel was dead, and pried 
open his mouth, blowing into his nostrils. In a few minutes he recovered. 
I suppose he was smothered. We were scarcely able to breath ourselves, 
and Samuel was under me, but was only a little hurt. Sophia hurt the side 
of her face and her arm. I was very badly bruised in at least twenty 
places, and could not walk for three days without assistance. When Samuel 
recovered I fainted several times. We had no lights and there was no 
water, except that which was muddy, which they threw in my face. It was 
w T ith the greatest difficulty I could " 

Letter from Vesta Whittlesey to Hannah (Clark) Hart, South- 
ington, Conn. : 

11 Tallmadge, July 28, 18 13. 
' * Dear Grandmother : 

" Through the goodness of God, we have at length arrived at our place of 
abode, and are pretty well settled. . . . 

" I have not been homesick at all since we have been here, although I 
was quite so on the road, in the State of Pennsylvania; but it would be find- 
ing fault with Providence to complain or be uneasy after receiving such 
special favors at His hands. You have probably heard through a letter of 
Mr. Whittlesey of our misfortunes on the road. I think we should not have 
survived five minutes longer. My feelings cannot be described, and I can- 
not think without tears. . . . 

" I have not yet recovered from my hurt, and never expect to. Our chil- 
dren had the chicken-pox since we came here, four weeks ago; but are better 
now. I visit Connecticut almost nightly in my dreams, which is some satis- 
faction. But, I tell you, I am better pleased with the place than I expected, 
though you may think it flattery; but it is not. Our nearest neighbor south 
is about a quarter of a mile, — the most kind, obliging, and Christian people 
I ever saw. Their name is Kilbourn (George Kilbourn and Almira, his wife). 
Our house is comfortable, but is not furnished. We expect to do it after 
harvest. . . . 

" As to provisions, we do very well. They had prepared flour from five 
bushels of excellent wheat ; a keg of maple sugar ; nearly a barrel of pork ; 
lard, butter, soap, vinegar ; a cow, and all things necessary. It was strange 
to see the rejoicing there appeared to be on our arrival. One sent me some 
dried pumpkin ; another milk, berries, and so on. Sophia Kilbourn has 
helped me just when I needed help, and is the finest of girls. As to neigh- 
bors and acquaintances, I have a most agreeable circle ; and I find many 
who were acquainted with you all. I had a number of tea parties, and yes- 
terday afternoon we had Mr. George Kilbourn and wife, Ephriam Clark and 
wife, Judge Norton and wife, Mr. Woodruff, a missionary from Litchfield, 
Conn., and Sophia Kilbourn. You will perhaps smilingly ask bow I enter- 
tain them. Very well. Our floors are good white wood boards ; our table 
is a borrowed one, so small that only four or five can sit at it at a time ; but 
I take up a board of the right length from my chamber floor, put it on the 
table, and cover with a cloth. My china becomes it very well, and we have 
excellent meals, most frequently relished after a blessing. We have had 
preaching three Sabbaths since we came and two lectures, and a conference 
at Mr. Clark's every Sabbath after meeting. There have been four different 
priests to visit us, and week before last we attended a wedding — the Rev. 
John Seward to Miss Harriet Wright, daughter of Esquire Wright, formerly 
of Canaan. There were about thirty present, and but one or two were not 
dressed in silk or cambric. As to the quantity of land cleared within sight 
of our house, there are about thirty acres, including the center and a lot

Asaph has cut, but not yet logged. They have cleared four acres in front of 
our house, and, by going four or five rods, we can see four houses, all within 
three-quarters of a mile. . . 

" We are now harvesting wheat, of which we had a good crop, and are 
cutting away the dry trees from our home lot, in order to set out apple trees 
this fall. I can give no one wishing to come here encouragement about good 
roads, for I think there can be no worse ones anywhere than from the east- 
ern side of the Alleghanies to this place. As to the country, I can give 
every encouragement. The timber is large, tall, and straight. It is said an 
ox team is best to move it with ; but, coming only to see the country, the 
cheapest and nearly as speedy way is to come on foot, and by the northern 
route. . . ." 

310. *ELISHA (John 123 , Eliphalet 41 , Eliphalet 9 , John 1 ), b. 
Oct. 19, 1783, in Washington, Conn. When he was nine years 
old, 1792, his parents removed to Salisbury, Conn., where his 
boyhood was spent on a farm ; during the school terms he went 
to Danbury, Conn., public schools; while there, did chores to 
pay for his board. He afterwards studied law in the office of 
his brother, Matthew Beale Whittlesey, in Danbury, and early 
qualified himself for the practice of law. He was admitted to 
the bar of Fairfield county court, also opened an office in New 
Milford, Conn., in 1805 ; Jan. 5, 1806, he m. Polly Mygatt, b. Jan. 
8, 1787, in Danbury, Conn., dau. of Comfort Starr Mygatt and 
Polly, his wife. [Cothren's Hist. Ancient Woodbury. The 
Cogswell Family of America. Appleton's Cyclopedia of Am. 
Biographies, Vol. VI. Canfield in Early Times by Dr. Jackson 
Truesdale, Canfield, Ohio.] June 3, 1806, Mr. and Mrs. Whit- 
tlesey left Danbury, Conn., for the West, in a Jersey wagon 
with a good team of horses. Before leaving, the young bride 
asked her father for $50 with which to purchase, as they 
passed through New York, a new bonnet, some silverware, 
linen, etc. Mr. Mygatt replied by saying, that she could have 
no use for such articles in the place where she was going, 
and as for table ware, all she would need would be two tin 
cups and as many pewter spoons with which to eat their 
mush and milk. But, all the same, Polly got her $50, but as 
to how it was spent history is silent. The morning after leav- 
ing Pittsburg, they were surprised to find darkness spread- 
ing over the land, to such an extent that for a time they thought 
best to put up. It was the total sun eclipse in June, 1806. 
They arrived in Canfield, Mahoning co., Ohio, June 27, 1806. 
Clients did not at first show up in abundance, therefore Mr. 
Whittlesey's first winter in Ohio, that of 1806-7, was spent in 
teaching school in the vicinity of the present so-called mud 
schoolhouse. The years of 1807 and 1808 were busy ones. 
The lot was cleared, a large house built, and Mr. Whittlesey's 
professional duties increased, he being public prosecutor for the 
entire Western Reserve. They removed from their cabin of 
two rooms to their new house, Oct. 27, 1808. Mr. Whittlesey 
was connected with the militia, and, in 1808, he was promoted 



126 WHITTLESEY GENEALOGY. 

to the captaincy, and, in 1810, was commissioned as aid-de-camp 
on the staff of Maj.-Gen. Wadsworth of the 4th Division Ohio 
Militia. On receipt of the news of Hull's surrender, — the excite- 
ment produced by the first fire on Ft. Sumter was not a 
parallel one, — Mr. Whittlesey closed his law books, dismissed his 
clients, and, the second day following, Maj.-Gen. Wadsworth, 
with Maj. Whittlesey for his aid, was on his way to Cleveland, 
escorted by a company of volunteer cavalry. Under the call of 
the President, Mr. Whittlesey received the appointment of 
Brigade Major in the Army of the Northwest under Gen. 
Harrison. In Feb., 181 3, after Winchester's defeat, Maj. Whit- 
tlesey rode from Maumee Rapids to Chillicothe, one hundred and 
eighty miles, in three days and nights, with a message to the 
legislature then in session. The first part of the route from 
camp was made in the night through the famous " black swamp " 
which had been flooded and then frozen. As the water receded, 
large, irregular cakes of ice were left resting on the mud which 
obscured the trail through the woods. It was necessary to 
move at night for fear of Indian scouts. Before daylight 
fifteen miles had been passed, over ground that would generally 
be considered impassable. Towards the close of his service he 
became ill with camp-fever. Dr. Jackson Truesdale copied from 
the autobiography of Rev. Joseph Badger, who was a nurse in the 
Revolutionary army, the following : " Soon after the building of 
Ft. Meigs was commenced, the men began to be sick. Here 
Maj. E. Whittlesey was taken very sick. The general's tent was 
crowded. I took him into my own tent and took care of him 
night and day. He was given up to die by all except Dr. 
Stonard of the Va. line and myself. The doctor understood 
the case. I carefully administered the prescriptions which were 
blessed for his recovery." Mr. Whittlesey returned to his 
home in Mar., 181 3, reopened his office, and resumed the quieter 
pursuits of his profession. He was a member of the Ohio 
State House of Representatives in 1820 and 1821. In 1822, 
Mr. Whittlesey was first elected a member of Congress, and 
continued as such up to 1838, when he resigned. As a useful 
and indefatigable legislator, Mr. Whittlesey had no superior in, 
Congress. His whole time and study were directed to the 
furtherance of the public good. He never annoyed the House 
for the mere purpose of declamation. Was one of the founders 
of the Whig party and an ardent friend of Henry Clay. Mr. 
Whittlesey was made chairman of the Committee of Claims, one 
of the most responsible committees of the House. During the 
recesses of Congress he assisted his law partner in the firm of 
Whittlesey & Newton, Canfield, which firm was formed in 1821, 
and continued up to 1841. Stern integrity, benevolence, and 
morality are to be read in his features, and his whole life was a 
commentary and illustration of his physiognomy. Upon his

retirement from Congress, Mr. Whittlesey resumed his law 
practice. In 1841, President Harrison appointed him Auditor 
for the Treasury for the Post-office Department. He resigned 
the auditorship in Sept., 1843, returning to Canfield, and to his 
practice at law. In 1847, he was appointed general agent of 
the Washington Monumental Association. In May, 1849, 
President Taylor appointed Mr. Whittlesey first Comptroller 
of the United States Treasury, whereupon he resigned his con- 
nection with the Monument Association. At the beginning of 
Pierce's administration of the Presidency he resigned from the 
Comptrollership of the Treasury ; but Mr. Pierce refused to 
accept his resignation, and at his earnest request he continued 
in the office to the close of President Pierce's administration. 
Mr. Whittlesey returned to Canfield in 1857; he did not re- 
sume his law practice. In 1861, he was re-appointed first 
Comptroller of the U. S. Treasury by President Lincoln. Mr. 
Whittlesey was known as the ''watch dog of the treasury," and 
held office until his death, which occurred Jan. 7, 1863. Mrs.

perseverance and economy they at length accumulated a good 
property. 

Their children were twelve, who died in infancy.

at Stockbridge, Mass., Feb. 14, 1775, in a log hut. He received 
the rudiments of his education from his mother, and attended 
the academy at Lenox, Mass., during one term. At the age of 
eighteen he commenced teaching, and continued the practice for 
more than thirty seasons. During this time he also managed 
his own productive farm, which yielded more than the average 
farms of even greater size, owing to his practical knowledge, 
strength in body and mind, and his industrious and expert use 
of every farm implement. Oct. 15, 1804, he m. Rebecca Smalley, 
b. Dec. 3, 1778, the youngest daughter of Rev. John Smalley, 
D.D., of New Britain, Conn. She was a woman of much cheer- 
fulness, benevolence, and piety; she was received into her father's 
church Nov. 23, 1803. Mr. Whittlesey commenced business in 
Lenox, Mass., as a merchant, but soon removed to the house 
and farm of Dr. Smalley, where he continued through life. 
For many years he was a member of the Hartford 
County Agricultural Society, and was generally on some com- 
mittee to award premiums. He was justice of the peace and 
a representative to the Legislature of Connecticut. The cause 
of common schools had no truer friend. He spent much time 
for many years in examining teachers and visiting schools, and 
advocated a system of graded schools long before it was adopted 
or generally discussed in Connecticut. He was a rigid disci- 
plinarian in the school and family, and his firm government 
always demanding and securing obedience. This, together 
with his consistent example and the cheerful piety of his 
wife, was the principal means of the early and hopeful con- 
version of his ten children. He united with the Congregational 
Church of New Britain, Conn., Rev. John Smalley, D.D., being 
the pastor. Oct. 13, 1805, and from 1807, was one of the church 
deacons for forty-four years. He led the church singing for 
many years, and was the superintendent of the first Sunday- 
school organized in the county, May, 18 16. [Whittlesey Memo- 
rials, 1 <S 5 5 . 1 He headed the list of temperance and anti-slavery 
societies, and was a most successful, intelligent, and public- 
spirited man. Mis piety was not noisy, but always the same. 
He bore years of suffering from a cancer with fortitude and 
cheerful submission, and departed from this life Jul)* 21, 1851, 
aged 76, Mrs. Whittlesey having died Jan. 8, 1838. [Andrews'

His character and the respect in which he was held are reflected 
in the following extract of an obituary which appeared Nov. 8, 
1883, in the Congregationalist of Boston, Mass. : 

David C. Whittlesey, on the morning of October 13th, was called to rest, 
aged 80 years. For many years Mr. Whittlesey has been one of the prom- 
inent men in Litchfield county, and his death deserves more than passing 
notice. In the earthly career of this venerable man there are no materials 
for an exciting biography. But there is the power of a single, earnest, con- 
siderate life. It was a life that speaks to us by its sincerity and truthfulness. 
His strict honesty and accurate knowledge of men and affairs gave him a 
wide and favorable acquaintance in the State. As a student of men and 
business, he had, perhaps, few superiors ; he was known as a man without 
guile. Anything like compromise with wrong, shrewd and unmanly tricks, 
instead of straightforward methods of accomplishing certain ends, were 
abhorrent to all the delicate sensibilities of his moral and spiritual being. 
His religious views were the result of much thought and careful inquiry. 
Whatever was good in him in spirit and act was the outcome of principle, 
not impulse. A deep, genuine abiding principle controlled him. In all the 
relations of life he was faithful. He has left the record of an earnest Chris- 
tian, a tender and loving husband and father, a faithful friend, a sympathiz- 
ing neighbor. His memory lingers with precious fragrance in the hearts of 
the people with whom he lived, and especially the hearts of his kindred. 
While he abode in the flesh, he strove to walk with God ; and now "he is 
not, for God took him."

MRS. ABIGAIL (GOODRICH) WHITTELSEY, No. 360. 



WHITTLESEY GENEALOGY. I 4 I 

Gen. Whittelsey devoted much of his leisure time during 
several years next prior to his decease in collecting information 
and writing up the family history, published in 1855, which has 
proved invaluable to the compiler. Those who went through 
the labors of procuring and arranging details of the first gene- 
alogy could appreciate the patience and perseverance necessary 
to such a work. His corps commander is the author of an 
eulogy published in the Detroit Post, from which the following 
is extracted : 

" The press telegrams from Washington announce the death of General 
H. M. Whittelsey in the United States military hospital near that city. To 
those who lived in Detroit twelve years ago, General Whittelsey was well 
known as among the foremost young men in most public enterprises — in 
the Young Men's Society, in the fire department, in the military organiza- 
tions, and in educational interests generally. Few among us were more 
esteemed for high intellectual and social qualities. In the summer of 1861 
he left the office of the Register of Deeds for the county of Wayne to accept 
an appointment as assistant quartermaster of the volunteers, with the rank 
of captain in the United States army. He served through the war with 
fidelity and conscientiousness of duty unsurpassed in his department of ser- 
vice. * During all the years of the war he was the custodian of millions of 
public money and public property. So conscientious in the discharge of 
even minor duties of office ; so punctilious in the discharge of all social 
courtesies ; a friend so loving, generous, and noble, a man so full of the 
attributes of honor and honesty, the writer may be permitted to repeat of 
him, with a deep feeling, the trite quotation : 

" ' None knew him but to love him, 
None named him but to praise.' " 

— Detroit, Aug. 12, 1873. 

General Whittelsey d. at St. Elizabeth Hospital near Wash- 
ington, D. C, Aug. 10, 1873, and was buried at Owego, N. V. 
Mrs. Whittelsey d. at Washington, I). C, Apr. 14, 1878, and 
was buried at Owego, N. Y. They had but one child, which d. 
in infancy. 

825 Charles Augustus, b. at Hartford, Conn., Oct. 20, 1823. At the time 

of his father's sudden death (1842) he thought it best to leave his 
studies and follow a more active life. At that time to obtain a 
position on one of the great merchant ships of New York was con- 
sidered a great favor. He went on several voyages — one to Cal- 
cutta, two or three to China, and one to Rotterdam. He was 
appointed navigator of the William G. Hack staff, bound for Cali- 
fornia. The guards of the ship were low, and, in giving some order 
to furl in sail in a storm, he himself was washed overboard, Feb. 7, 
1849. 

826 Emily Chauncey, b. Jan. 17, 1825 ; m. June 28, 1848, Rev. Lucius 

Curtis, b. in Torrington, Conn., Nov. 16, 1812, the son of Eleazier 
Curtis, who was descended from Thomas Curtis of Wethersfield, 
* Conn. His great-grandfather, Zebulon Curtis, was the son of 

Thomas Curtis of Farmington, who was a captain under Colonel 
Wolcott, and m. Mary Goodrich in 1703. His mother was Amanda 
Steele of New Hartford, Conn. She was descended from John 
Steele of Hartford and Governor Bradford of Plymouth, Mass. 
Rev. Lucius Curtis graduated from Williams College in 1835. He 
studied theology two years at Andover, Mass., and one year in 
New Haven Seminary, and settled in the ministry over the First 
Congregational Church in Woodbury, Conn., his pastorate continu-

ing there eight years. His second settlement was over the " long 
church in Colchester, Conn." He remained there as pastor twelve 
years. His health failing, he made a short tour abroad — in Eng- 
land, Scotland, and the continent. On his return he spent seven 
years as acting pastor in Ripon, Wis., and Lyons, la. Since 
then he has resided in Hartford, Conn. , and engaged in preaching 
and literary work. Mrs. Curtis possesses a soul of fidelity, courage, 
religious strength, and devotion that has few equals. Mr. and Mrs. 
Curtis live in Hartford, Conn. They have no children.

there and in the West until 1848, when, as purser of mail steamer 
via Cape Horn, he visited California and remained in business 
in San Francisco until the fall of 1854; 1S54 he returned to the 
States; 1S55 practised law in Superior City, Wis.; i860 returned to 
Ypsilanti. Oct., 1S61, commissioned by Gov. Blair, 1st Lieut., 
Co. D, 1 st Michigan Infantry. His memory was wonderfully 
tenacious; he was a perfect gentleman and scholar. Was pro- 
moted to Adjutant Jan., 1862, and Captain Co. B, May 5, 1862, 
successively, and was killed at the second battle of Bull Run. He 
was known to spend days and weeks, while only expecting a com- 
mission, in the closest study of the dry est tactics and military 
strategy, while his collection of maps and war memoranda was 
unrivaled. Fearless and full of enthusiasm, he was leader of 
his company in battle. One occasion, being thirty paces in front 
of his co., under a crushing fire, he was forcibly pulled back by 
his orderly, who claimed that place as his by the rules of the ser- 
vice. His death must have been instantaneous. He was nine 
times in battle and under fire; the tenth brought him a soldier's 
grave on rebel soil, the side of his head being shot away with 
grape shot. The following are some extracts from his letters : 
" Since we have been before and behind Richmond there has been 
no lack of incident and excitement. I can now say that I know 
practically something of war, about which I have theorized so long. 
I have been shot at, and that tells all a captain can see or say. " 

" July 1. After the battle of Malvern Hill commenced with the 
artillery duel, we were formed in a double column, marched into 
a wheat field, made to lie down under a scorching sun, in a little 
hollow between two low hills. We could see nothing a hundred 
yards from us in any direction, and there we had to enjoy the 
" Giandia Cretaminis " — over the left. For four long hours 
round shot, grape, shell, and canister went plunging over and 
around into us, and we powerless. Enfilades from the right and 
left of us at that. The boys stood it, or laid at it, like Trojans. 
Not a man moved unless hit. In my own company a fragment of 
a shell fell with a peculiar heavy dead thud on the man next 
beyond me. I ordered him to the rear. Leaving his musket he 
limped away, as I thought, badly hurt. In twenty minutes he 
came back with a steady Indian lope, and lying down beside me

said to me in a low tone, ' It didn't go through, Cap'n.' A grape 
shot struck the head of another of my men. He went to the rear 
with a bloody poll, and was back again in ten minutes cracking 
jokes about the thickness of his skull. ... At length came 
the order to go to the front. I wish you could have seen our line 
as we rose the crest of the hill and went over a Pennsylvania reg- 
iment, straight as a ramrod and steady as a railway train. I for- 
got everything in my pride at our steadiness. Well, we went in 
and did our duty.'' He lost his life Aug. 30, 1862.

MEMORANDA. 

The following is from a New Haven daily paper, published the 
morning after Mr. Whittelsey's death : 

" Mr. Charles Bryan Whittelsey was a deacon in the Center Church, and 
probably adorned that station as much as any man that ever filled it. His 
life has been its own eulogy, and his whole character has doubtless been 
fully appreciated by the community, except perhaps in one particular. 
Though regarded as an enterprising business man, his intellectual powers 
were of a higher order than some of his fellow-citizens may suppose, and in 
this respect would have adorned almost any station. Those who have come 
in close contact with his mind, or heard him speak on any important occa- 
sion, or seen the efforts of his pen, knew that he was a very able man ; but 
he was quiet, unostentatious in his deportment, and chiefly exercised his 
talents in the promotion of the interests of his business and the prosperity 
of his church. But he was not unmindful of the public welfare, and was 
always ready to discharge every duty which he owed as a citizen. 

" As a man and a Christian, we believe that we shall not be regarded as 
using the language of overwrought eulogy when we say that Mr. Whit- 
telsey, so far as the human eye could discover, was worthy of imitation in 
all the relations of life. We learned that he died a most triumphant death, 
clearly illustrating the power of his faith to bear him even joyfully through 
the darkness which ever hangs so fearfully between the mortal and spiritual 
world."

national guard, on the first three-months' call as a private. Par- 
ticipated in the first battle of Bull Run, the regiment going into the 
battle from choice, after its term of enlistment had expired. It 
lost heavily. It was in General Burnside's brigade, which was the 
first brigade to take position on the field that morning. Later 
in the day, the regiment was ordered alone to the most advanced 
position on the field. It was there exposed to the artillery fire of 
the enemy (who had stopped in their retreat upon learning that a 
fresh army was close at hand), and stood facing the approach of 
the enemy's reinforcements under General Beauregard. There it 
remained (after its line of support had melted away) until the 
enemy were within five hundred yards of it, when word came from 
General McDowell, ordering the regiment to retire from the field, 
which it did in perfect order in line of battle, in common time — 
not one man running. It was the last regiment on the field. 
This action of the 71st regiment was specially mentioned by the 
Richmond, Va. , papers in their accounts of the battle, one of them 
publishing a map of the field of battle in which the position of the 
" N. Y. 71st" was conspicuously shown. Its behavior during the 
battle was also favorably mentioned in the ' ' Illustrated London 
News" of Aug. 31, 1861. Mr. Whittelsey served again with the 
71st regiment on the second three-months emergency call in 1862, 
as a sergeant, came back a lieutenant. The regiment occupied 
one of the outposts for the defense of Washington, most of the 
time. No fighting this time, but it was often expected. Again 
went to the front with the 71st regiment, as a lieutenant, on the 
third three-months emergency call in 1863, occasioned by the in- 
vasion of Pennsylvania by General Lee. This term was nothing 
but hard work, long marches, often in stormy weather, and skir- 
mishes. The regiment was under fire on three different occasions, 
from the advanced forces of the enemy which it helped to check. 
Upon the defeat of General Lee at Gettysburg, the whole force of 
which the 71st formed a component part, was ordered to cut off 
his retreat by the occupation of the mountain passes or gaps. It 
marched by forced marches along the mountain ridge from gap to 
gap, until word came at last that he with his army (or what was 
left of it) had escaped. It then made reconnoisances and done duty 
in Maryland, during the balance of its service. He was a member 
of Co. A, 71st regiment, New York State National Guard, for nine 
years Date of discharge, April 25, 1870. In politics he is an 
" Independent Republican."

ger, b. 1790, at Gilmanton, N. H., son of Maj. Peaslee Badger 
and Lydia Kelly. Rev. Joseph Badger was the distinguished 
clergyman who emigrated from New Hampshire in 18 16 and 
founded over two hundred liberal churches in western New 
York before 1830, by taking no name except that of " Chris- 
tians." I lis father, Major Peaslee Badger of Gilmanton, N. H., 
was son of Gen. Joseph Badger, who commanded New Hamp- 
shire militia at Bennington at the capture of Burgoyne, and 
whose brigade, after the battle, was detailed to conduct Bur- 
goyne and the 8,000 prisoners there taken, to Boston, where

they were long imprisoned. The general was prominent in the 
Revolution from its origin, being colonel 10th N. H. regiment 
before the war and the first magistrate elected in his native 
county, which he represented in the provincial congress, and 
also in the state convention which adopted the constitution of 
the United States. Those who have read Harriet Beecher 
Stowe's famous story, " Old Town Folks," will recall the central 
old homestead of Dea. Joseph Badger and his noble wife as the 
two leading types of New England character ; also the son Wil- 
liam for whom so many prayers and sacrifices were made to send 
him through Harvard College. Rev. Mr. Badger d. at Honeoye 
Falls, N. Y., May 12, 1852. Mrs. Elizabeth Badger d. at 
Honeoye Falls, N. Y., 1864. 

Their children, as near as can be ascertained, were :

graduated at Harvard University, A.B. of 1855; Harvard Law 
School, 1856; admitted to the bar in New York city, Dec. 1856. Mr. 
Badger published many pieces in prose and verse, and has written 
for the Home Journal and other papers. In 1861 he entered the 
ranks as private in the 71st Regiment of New York, and marched 
across Maryland to Washington In May, 1862, he recruited 
a company of infantry, 105 men, at his own expense, was commis- 
sioned its captain and assigned to the "Stanton Legion," 145th 
Regiment N. Y. Volunteers. His company saved the "colors" 
in the terrible defeat of Chancellorville, where they lost one-fourth 
of their number, and afterwards bore them safely through Gettys- 
burg, and many other terrible battles. Its first baptism of blood 
was at Chancellorsville in May, 1863, which was followed by the 
long march in summer heat to Gettysburg in July of that year; in 
both battles the regiment was hotly engaged and suffered severe- 
ly, being in the 12th Army Corps. A spontaneous fire from this 
regiment killed two of ' ' Stonewall" Jackson's guard and gave Jack- 
son his death-wound, from which he died within a week. The next 
morning at daylight Jackson's Corps of 30,000 men, as if to avenge 
his fall, advanced with terrific force against our 3d and 12th Corps, 
amounting together to less than Jackson's force; a fearful slaugh- 
ter ensued until noon, when we had to yield to the line and fall 
back to Hooker's headquarters at Chancellorville House. The 
20th Conn, and 145th N. Y. were the last regiments to fall back. 
Capt. Badger and his second lieutenant were the last two officers 
to leave that line. Capt. Badger served faithfully through the 
entire war, in the thickest of the battles. In November, 1865, he 
was promoted to lieutenant-colonel of the 145th N. Y. V., and 
returned to his law practice in New York city. He m at New

b. Nov. 1, 1801, in Salem, Conn., on the farm belonging to his 
father, where he spent his youth under the strict discipline of 
Rev. John, developing his education and talents for music after 
his day's work was done. He, with his brothers John and Henry, 
became very proficient in music and by experiments fast made 
improvements on their first crude piano, and started in the 
manufacture of instruments for which they soon found a mar- 
ket. On Jan. 1, 1826, in Salem, Conn., Orramel m. Charlotte 
Maconda Morgan, b. in Salem, Conn., July 4, 1805, and went to 
Buffalo, N. Y., to reside, where they remained three years. 
The piano manufacture was then in its infancy and the work- 
manship, including the sawing of the ivories and inlaying of the 
mother-of-pearl letters and ornaments, was done entirely by 
hand. The pianos were usually of rosewood or mahogany. 
Orramel Whittlesey represented the town of Salem in the

General Assembly in 1832 ; he was also Justice of the Peace, 
Postmaster, and State Senator. In 1839, ne established and 
opened the academy of music, so well known throughout New 
England and the South, as "Music Vale," the first conservatory 
of music of New England, where instruction was given in 
notation, thorough bass, harmony and the general laws of com- 
position, counterpart and fugue. Voice culture and lessons on 
the organ, harp, and guitar were given as well as the pianoforte. 
At one time the school numbered as high as eighty pupils ; 
thirty being the average number of boarders. Dr. Lowell 
Mason and George F. Root of Boston received their technical 
education here. The educational character of the institution 
had kept pace with the architectural extensions. Competent 
teachers were employed, the German method of instruction 
followed. The school was authorized to confer the degree of a 
normal academy and the teachers it turned out located in all 
parts of the country. For twenty-five years this academy 
flourished, but the breaking out of the Civil War, followed in 
Feb., 1868, by the burning of the building, foretold the end of 
"Music Vale," although another edifice was erected near the 
site of the old one, did not prosper, and during the seventies 
was closed and sold. Tuesday, Mar. 16, 1897, "Music Vale" 
burned to the ground in spite of the hard work of the villagers 
to save this historic building. Mrs. Charlotte Maconda Whit- 
tlesey d. July 26, 1865, in Jersey City. The following is copied 
from a local paper : 

" By the death of Mrs. Orramel Whittlesey the community of Salem and 
the Seminary of Young Ladies, with which she has been so long connected, 
have lost a most valued friend and counselor. Few women have ever so 
completely gained the confidence and affection of all those with whom they 
were associated as she. A model Christian woman, constant, yet unobtru- 
sive in her deeds of kindness and charity, she never by word or deed 
offended the perfect law of life. Not one of the many pupils who have 
learned to regard her as a second mother but will sincerely grieve to learn 
of her death, while to those who were bound to her by the ties of kindred 
the loss is irreparable." 

Prof. Whittlesey d. Sept. 9, 1876. . They were buried in the 
family burying grounds just back of the site of " Music Vale," 
called "Moss Wood Glen." 

Their children were : 

1 141 + Elizabeth Tuli.y, b. Oct. 8, 1826; m. John T. Maginnis.

before, leaving but two houses standing, the hospital and one 
dwelling. There being so little accommodation he was placed 
in a tent where his clothing was never dry for six weeks. The 
wound was caused by grape shot just below the left knee. It was 
dressed by stuffing the wound full of cotton and, binding it up, 
was not looked at again for three weeks, when it was found to 
be in such a condition that it was necessary to amputate the 
limb. His family, hearing of his being wounded, sent a man to 
bring him home. This man, when about half way there, heard 
that he was dead, and, not thinking it necessary to go for the 
body, returned home, and the family mourned him dead a year,

Pa., to Elizabeth Duncan, b. at North East, Apr. 8, 1806, dau. 
of James and Nancy (Baty) Duncan of North East, Pa., with 
whom he journeyed on horseback to their home at Lexington, 
Ky. He then taught school one year at Chillicothe, O., and ten 
years the principal of a seminary in Kentucky, afterwards a 
merchant in Sidney, O. He was president of the Sidney 
Mining Co., a sturdy little company with 37 wagons, four yoke 
of oxen each, that left Sidney March 28, 1849, for California, 
celebrating the liberties of our country on the summit of the 
Rocky Mountains, July 4th, and arriving at Grass Valley, Yuba 
River, Sept. 10th. Returned by way of Panama, trip occupying 
57 days ; remained one year in Sidney, then moved to Toledo, 
Ohio, where he spent the remaining years of his life as a mer- 
chant and in public trusts. In person Mr. Whittlesey was of 
medium height, spare, erect, vigorous, and active, with black 
hair and eyes ; in habits, temperate and self-denying ; in business, 
careful, exact, and upright ; in his family, loving and kind, and 
in church, staunch and self-sacrificing, being one of six, in- 
cluding his wife, to organize the first Presbyterian Church of 
Toledo, O., in 1855, he continued as one of its most honored 
members and active supporters during his life. In politics he 
was an active "Whig," and an unwavering Republican. In his 
latter years he spent much time in general reading and the 
study of the scriptures, and reached the age of 84, with an 
unimpaired mind stored with much valuable knowledge of 
literature, and in manners, habits, and feelings a Christian 
gentleman.

Artillery; wounded, June 3, 1864, in the battle of Cold Harbor. The 
last day's battle of the Wilderness was under the command of Col. 
Kellogg. The regiment was disposed in three lines, under Majors 
Hubbard, Rice, and Ellis, and advanced in that order, the objective 
point being the heavy earthworks defended by Longstreet's vet- 
erans. [Col. Charles Whittlesey's records; personal account.] It 
passed at double-quick time to the first line, capturing and sending 
to the rear over 300 prisoners. Forward again at double quick the 
regiment went, with intervals of less than one hundred yards be- 
tween the battalions, to and through a stiff abatis, within twenty 
yards of the enemy's line, when it met a most destructive fire from 
both its front and left flanks. But they pressed on, some even to the 
top of the main line of earthworks. Nothing, however, could withstand 
the murderous fire that met them, and the first and second batteries 
crept back to the somewhat less exposed position held by the third, 
but leaving on the field 323 of Litchfield's bravest sons, twelve of 
them dead or mortally wounded, — a record unsurpassed by the 
Union army during the war. [Engagement at Cold Harbor, Va.,

650. FREDERICK (Roger 96 , Lemuel 122 , Eliphalet 41 , Eli- 
phalet 9 , John 1 ), b. Dec. 13, 1801, Southington, Conn.; attorney; 
Cleveland, O.; graduated Yale College, 1822, 4>BK. The fol- 
lowing is from the Cleveland Herald of Nov. 22, 1854: 

" For fourteen years past Mr. Whittlesey has been a sufferer under 
paralysis; hence his withdrawal from active life has made him a stranger to 
the thousands who, in that time, have nocked into this city. Mr. Whittlesey 
graduated from Yale College, studied law in Connecticut, and subsequently- 
spent one year in the law office of Hon. Elisha Whittlesey (No. 310) at Can- 
field, then in Trumbull co. In 1827 the deceased removed to Lorain co., 
and opened a law office at Elyria, immediately rising to prominence and dis- 
tinction in his profession. He was soon called upon to represent the people 
in both branches of the legislature, and distinguished himself as a prompt, 
upright, and industrious representative. Especially, when filling the chair, 
his dignity, decision, and familiarity with parliamentary rules won the ad- 
miration of the legislature, and to Mr. Whittlesey are we indebted for some 
of the most clear, explicit, and valuable laws now upon our statute-book. 
For a short time Mr. Whittlesey was editor of the Ohio Atlas, the Whig 
organ of Lorain co. In 1834 Mr. Whittlesey removed to Cleveland, Ohio, 
engaging in the practice of his profession, but soon retiring from it, how- 
ever, to engage in the more congenial pursuit of farming and horticulture. 
In 1836, in conjunction with Col. Charles Whittlesey (No. 693)., he purchased 
this paper, and for about two vears the deceased was the principal editor, 
enriching its columns by his vigorous and accomplished mind. For a num- 
ber of years Mr. Whittlese)^ was one of the associate judges of this county, 
and, owing to the crowded state of the docket, he much of the time per- 
formed the duties of presiding judge, and most satisfactorily to the bar and 
the public. From the bench Mr. Whittlesey was appointed clerk of the 
Cuyahoga Court of Common Pleas, and, although then suffering under 
paralysis, he performed the duties for the constitutional term of seven 
years. Mr. Whittlesey was a gentleman of decided ability, a man of un- 
common intelligence, and of very general and varied information. As a 
friend and neighbor, he secured the respect and esteem of all who knew 
him, and as an upright, honest, Christian man his memory is blessed. 
Through the long years in which he has been an almost helpless invalid, 
cheerfulness, resignation, and patience have adorned his character, and, as 
death gradually drew around its curtain, our friend looked upon the fading 
light of life as the soft twilight of a beauteous summer day. We will not 
disturb the sanctity of that chamber where this ' good man met his fate,' 
but must be permitted to record a message left for an absent friend just be- 
fore dissolution, when paralysis for a few hours left unfettered his powers of 
speech. ' Tell him,' said this dying man, ' that I bear evidence of the sup- 
porting realities of the Christian religion.' "

1446 * Willi am Beale, b. Oct. 2, 1841, at Marietta, Ohio ; graduated at 
Marietta College in 1861; law student; killed in the battle of Mission 
Ridge, Chattanooga, Tenn., Nov. 25, 1S63. The following sketch, 
taken from an Ohio paper, tells of his noble career: " Capt. Wm. 
Beale Whittlesey, whose early death is mourned by so many in this 
vicinity, was b. in Marietta, Ohio, Oct. 2, 1841, and graduated with 
honor to himself at the college in this place in 1861. When the call 
was made to raise the 92d Reg't, in the summer of 1S62, he offered 
himself as a volunteer, and was appointed to a second lieutenancy, 
not yet twenty-one years of age, but not without serious doubts and 
misgivings on the part of some that one so young and inexperienced 
should be given such a command. Whittlesey, however, had entered 
into this great work with all the enthusiasm of his ardent nature, 
and his character was now rapidly to be developed into a strong 
manhood under the discipline of the thorough education which he 
had received. He soon proved himself to be the most efficient officer 
in the enlistment, organization, and drill of his company, making it, 
what it subsequently proved to be, one of the best, if not the first, 
company in the regiment. He seemed to understand from the out- 
set what the spirit and duties of a soldier were, knowing what it 
was to yield implicit and unquestioning obedience to his superior 
officers and to assume at once all the difficulties and trials of a 
soldier's life. Although the camp for two or three months was 
scarcely a mile from his father's house, yet he refused all solicita- 
tions to spend a night under the paternal roof. He had identified 
himself thoroughly with his men, and would not set an example 
which they might not follow or indulge in what was forbidden to 
them Subsequently, when the regiment was ordered into service, 
he charged his mother, in case of his being sick, not to send for him 
under any circumstances. He had given himself wholly to the 
cause, and would abide all its results. In a letter written from the 
battlefield at a later period, he said: ' If I fall in this conflict, I do 
not regret the step I have taken.' His life and all was consecrated 
to the work. His sterling merits as an officer were very soon recog- 
nized, for they could not be hid, and six months had hardly elapsed 
before Whittlesey was promoted to a first lieutenancy in another 
company ; before the close of a week to the captaincy of his own 
company, made vacant by the resignation of Captain Thorinley. 
He had been from the beginning the ruling spirit of the company, 
upon whom the main reliance had been placed, and there were none 
now to question the fitness and wisdom of his being placed in the 
chief command. It is a circumstance worthy of mentioning here to 
find to what an extent the leading officers of the g2d Reg't were 
young men, — very young, and Marietta College boys. They soon 
proved themselves to be men of full stature, rising rapidly to honor, 
and making the regiment a very effective one in the service. Soon 
after the organization of the regiment it was moved to the Kanawha, 
in Western Virginia, where it remained until January, when it was

ordered into Tennessee to reinforce the Army of "the Cumberland. 
It suffered severely for a time from sickness, and became greatly 
reduced; but it bore its part in the action at Hovey's Gap, in July, 
when the army advanced from Murfreesboro and drove the enemy 
from the strong line of entrenchments, thereby securing possession of 
Tennessee. It was a part of Thomas' corps in the desperate fight of 
Chicamauga, doing most gallant service in that action. The same 
regiment was selected, among a few others, to perform that most 
important and dangerous service when Brown's Ferry, below Look- 
out Mountain, was secured, which opened our communication with 
Bridgeport and saved the Army of the Cumberland from the neces- 
sity of abandoning Chattanooga, which they could have held but a 
little longer for want of supplies. The last action in which the 
regiment was engaged was that deadly assault by which they 
carried Mission Ridge, at the battle of Chattanooga, and took pos- 
session of the headquarters of the rebel army. Prisoners there 
taken state that General Bragg had ridiculed the idea of our soldiers 
attempting to scale those heights, a feat regarded by him as impos- 
sible; yet the gallant 92d was in the lead in that desperate under- 
taking, and here it was that the lamented Whittlesey fell, pierced 
through the heart. He had nearly attained the summit, when he 
was struck as he was reaching over to take a gun from a member 
of another company that he might perform some effective work 
with his own hands. He had only time to exclaim: ' Boys, I'm 
killed; but don-'t mind me. Go on!' — and fell dead. Lieut. -Col. 
Putnam, in command of the regiment, had fallen wounded a few 
moments before, and subsequently, at another point of the field, 
Adjutant Turner fell mortally wounded."

MEMORANDA. 

Russell Botsford Brownell, b. in Woodbury, Conn., Dec. 5, 1839, 
graduated at Marietta College, Ohio, June 27, 1861; studied medi- 
cine with Dr. Gustave Weber of Cleveland and at the Cleveland 
Medical College in 1862-63. Dr. Weber was at that time surgeon- 
general of Ohio, and he was on his staff before Vicksburg during 
the siege. Mr. Brownell graduated at the Bellevue Medical Col- 
lege in 1864; was house-surgeon at Bellevue Hospital, and at the 
time of his death assistant professor at Bellevue Medical College. 
During these years he distinguished himself in his profession by 
his culture and his intense enthusiasm, often in his surgery per- 
forming remarkable operations, and in writing extensively for 
medical journals. The Hospital for the Ruptured and Crippled, 
on 42d Street, New York, absorbed much of his thought and efforts 
of his closing years. His health failing he engaged for six months 
as surgeon on the steamer Arago between New York and Havre. 
He said at one time " It is a mystery why I should be laid aside, 
but perhaps it is God's way for me to bring to completion my hos- 
pital." He was an elegant gentleman, with a heart as grand as his 
manners, and from time to time being thrown in contact largely 
with the wealthy and generous he interested them in his project 
and had a large sum pledged for it at the time of his death. As 
a last resort in the fall of 1866, he went to Egypt and died on the 
River of the Nile near Edfou, January 21, 1867, aged 28. He was 
buried in a tomb just outside of the walls of a " Coptic Convent," 
three miles from the river, the tomb being one of many hewn out 
of solid rock, cut in horizontally. (The Coptics are descendants of 
the Egyptians, who were Christians before the rise of Mahommed- 
ism.) The convent stands at the foot of a detached portion of the 
Lybian Hills, being of yellow sandstone.

bridge, Mass., constructed a road over the Alleghany mountains 
about 1820. He subsequently became a merchant in Ellington, 
Conn., was interested in various enterprises in Hartford, Conn., 
and trustee of the E. Averill estate for thirty years. Mr. and 
Mrs. Roswell Brown joined the First Church of Hartford in 
- April, 1838, where Mrs. Brown became deeply interested in the 
church and Sunday-school, the infant department of which she 
superintended in her ever beautiful manner for forty-five years, 
each year of which she was more deeply beloved. She was un- 
ordained, but a divinely appointed deaconess. Her early days 
were passed in Ellington, but she resided in Hartford for more 
than fifty years. During the war she was deeply interested in 
all enterprises in behalf of the Union soldiers. Mr. Brown d.

Salisbury, Conn. The journey was made in company with the 
family of Deacon Clark Sackett, who took the steamer Ohio 
from Fairport to Buffalo, from thence a packet on the Erie 
Canal, and for a portion of the way a very uncomfortable 
arrangement called a railroad, the time of the passengers being 
much taken up with watching for sparks and cinders which flew 
in at the open windows and burned their clothes. There was

much smoke and dust, but no water, and great was the relief of 
the party when the more comfortable stage coach was reached, 
in which their long journey was to be completed. This was in

Salisbury, Conn., Feb. 16, 1844, Dr. Lucius Clark Walton, b. 
July 2, 1 8 16; graduate of Yale College; teacher, Salisbury, 
Conn. In 1847 they removed to Tallmadge, O., where the old 
Whittlesey brick homestead was reoccupied. A half brother of 
Dr. Walton, James Morris Walton, made his home with the 
family until he became of suitable age to learn a trade. A 
motherless babe, Ann Elizabeth, was adopted Dec. 16, 1852, 
and d. Jan. 17, 1854, sincerely mourned. Later on, Nov. 30, 
1854, another motherless child, Fannie M., was adopted; in 
each case the name Walton was assumed, and every mark of 
affection shown. Few of those who best knew Mrs. Walton 
realized the heroic bravery that preserved a cheerful counte- 
nance and a sunny demeanor amid her cares and trials. Her 
home was always the center of a group of lively young people 
who found in her a most genial companion, herself the life of 
any company. The years of 1864-6, were spent in Conners- 
ville, Ind., where her husband was engaged in the hardware 
business. Returning from there, the house south of the center 
was purchased, and here Dr. Walton d. March 22, 1879.

Walton m. *Capt. John A. Means, whose military title was gained 
as a member of the 115th Reg't, Ohio Vol. Infantry, in the War 
of the Rebellion. Removing that same day to the old W T hittlesey 
farm, a portion of which was owned and highly improved by Capt. 
Means, " Orchard Home," as it was called, became the Mecca of 
many pilgrims, — the gathering-place of many happy companies. 
At this home Mrs. Means departed this life Dec. 5, 1894, a true 
Christian and implicit believer.

Tallmadge, O., May 18, 1826, where his childhood and youth 
were spent. About the year 1846 he joined with Henry B. 
Curtis in purchasing a team and wagon, which they drove to 
the northeastern part of Iowa. They bought a tract of land in 
Clayton county and commenced to cultivate it. The hermit 
life of this wilderness home was distasteful to one of his social 
qualities, and he soon after sold his interest to Mr. Curtis and 
returned to Tallmadge and bought the part of the Griswold 
farm now owned by John Norris and Richard Clayton. In 
1850, removed to Peoria, 111., and was m. on the 7th of Sep-

tember, 185 1, to Miss Lucy Maria Haskell. In June, 1854, 
Mr. and Mrs. Whittlesey removed to La Pointe, Wis., and 
July of that year he made the first improvement upon the 
site of the now flourishing town of Ashland. He built the 
first log cabin and afterward the first house in the place 
(the latter still standing). He was the first postmaster and 
the first justice of the peace in Ashland. He was afterward 
elected judge of the county of Ashland. In i860 he was 
elected a member of the legislature to represent the counties 
of Ashland, Burnett, Douglas, La Pointe, Polk, and St. Croix, 
and walked two hundred miles from Ashland to the Capitol 
at Bayfield to take his seat in the Senate. In 1861 he 
was appointed by President Lincoln receiver of the United 
States land office at Bayfield, to which place he removed. He 
held this office until 1868 and then resigned to accept that of 
Indian agent, to which he had been appointed. The privations 
and hardships of the pioneer life in that new and cold region 
were severe ; but they were borne by all the members of his 
estimable family with true heroism. The last six years of his 
life he was a great sufferer, which put to the test his patience 
and Christian resignation, as it did also the physical endurance 
of his heroic wife. Mr. Asaph Whittlesey d. at Bayfield, Wis.,

Baltimore, Md. Mr. Stratton was called to preach the Gospel 
of Christ, Aug. 23, 1828, at Warren, O., after which he received 
the call for Canfield, O., in the Congregational Church. He 
was ordained about 1830, and installed with the promise of 
$450 yearly salary. At the time of the marriage of Miss Anna 
Whittlesey to Mr. Stratton, her father, the Hon. Elisha, gave 
them a comfortable house and barn with an orchard and several 
acres of land, for pasturage, a cow, and a garden enclosed. In 
1837 Mr. Stratton gave up the church until 1842, when he was 
called upon to supply the Congregational Church of Deerfield, 
O. In 1866 removed to Warren, O. During all these years 
Mrs. Stratton labored with love in the church and home, 
developing one of the most beautiful characters in every respect

where Mr. Stratton had been pastor. In January, 1884, Mr.

Stratton removed to Spokane, Wash., 1889, where she passed 
the remainder of her life amid her children and grandchildren, 
retaining all her faculties perfectly, writing a beautiful hand 
and most interesting letter, several of which the compiler of 
this work values highly among the interesting papers of the 
material from which this work is compiled, bearing their silent 
testimony of the grand gifts of God, with which she was 
endowed, until she received her summons from her heavenly

home in Ottawa, 111., in 1881, he did not resume a pastorate, 
but by his wise and helpful counsels, and frequent preaching to 
destitute churches in the region and other ministerial labors, he 
rendered essential service to the kingdom of Christ. He never 
lost his interest in, or love for, the work of the Christian ministry, 
and to the last he delighted in proclaming the great and beloved 
truths of Christ and His Gospel, which he found increasingly 
precious in his own personal experience. Dr. Whittlesey was 
scholarly, cultured, and studious. He loved his books and the 
companionship of the refined and educated. He was genial, 
sympathizing, and friendly. He was loyal to his own denom- 
ination, yet catholic in his feelings to all who love our Lord." 
[Illinois General Congregational Association, Report of 1896, 
by G. S. F. Savage.] He entered life eternal Jan. 15, 1896. 
Mrs. Susan A. Whittlesey and their children survive him.

MEMORANDA. 

"The mission," says Mr. Meigs, " has sustained a great loss, 
and so has the cause of missions to the heathen." 

Mr. Kendall, writing from Dindigal after the death of Mr. 
Whittelsey, says: "While he was with us he showed that his heart 
was deeply engaged in the missionary work. On one occasion, 
before he was confined to his bed, he remarked that he had not 
the least desire to leave the work in which he was engaged. He 
also said: ' I would much rather be a missionary in this dark land, 
pointing these ignorant heathen to Christ, than be in America 
enjoying the civilized and Christian country.' When it was mani- 
fest that our brother must soon leave us, he felt calm and composed 
in view of his change. He was evidently ready to say: 'Not my 
will, but thine, O Lord, be done.' " [Missionary Herald, 1847, pp. 
248 and 304.]

1867, editing eleven volumes of reports. He also published, 
among other valuable works from his pen, a book on " Missouri 
Practice." A marked trait in his character was his contempt 
for all legal trickery and his strict observance of all the obliga- 
tions of honorable practice in his profession. He was also a 
terse, vigorous, and lucid writer on topics of popular interest, 
and his numerous contributions to the city press and periodicals 
were always over his own signature. Mr. Whittelsey d. at St. 
Louis, Mo., March 10, 1875. In his death the bar lost a mem- 
ber who reflected honor upon it, and the community a worthy 
and useful citizen. Many of his genealogical records have been 
used in the completion of this work.

ampton, Mass.; m. June 6, 1865, at Northampton, Mass., Laura 
Bridgman Wood, b. April 29, 1839, dau. of Amasa and Laura 
(Bridgman) Wood of Northampton, Mass. " On the night of 
Tuesday, Jan. 25, 1876, seven masked men entered simultane- 
ously the house of John Whittelsey, cashier of the Northampton 
National Bank, captured seven inmates of the house, bound and 
gagged them, and by force and torture obtained from the cashier 
the combination to the lock on the door of the bank and vault. 
They also took from the cashier his gold watch. Then, repair- 
ing to the bank, they entered the front door with the key they 
had taken from the cashier, and by means of the combination 
obtained from him opened the vault, and took therefrom money, 
bonds, certificates, and other securities of the face value of about 
one and a quarter millions of dollars. Of that amount $1 1 1,250 
was the property of the bank, and the balance was the property 
of private depositors. The burglars locked the vault door when 
they left, and wrenched off the dial. An expert locksmith from 
New York was sent for to unlock the vault door, and it was not 
until about twenty hours after that the robbery was definitely 
known. The robbery was committed between the hours of four 
and six o'clock on the morning of the 26th, and the robbers left 
town immediately thereafter. On Feb. 14, 1877, Robert Scott 
and James Dunlap, well known to the police force of New York 
as professional bank robbers, were arrested in Philadelphia as 
the ringleaders in this robbery, and on the 17th of that month 
brought to Northampton and committed to the county jail. On 
the 22d and 23d of March they were examined in the Town 
Hall before Trial Justice Chilson, and bound over for trial 
in the Superior Court, in June, under bonds of five hundred 
thousand dollars each. After that time they remained in jail 
under constant special guard, both inside and outside of the jail 
premises. At the session of the grand jury, June 12th, Scott 
and Dunlap were indicted for breaking and entering Cashier 
Whittelsey's house and stealing his gold watch, and also for 
breaking and entering the bank and stealing money and securi- 
ties therefrom. Monday, July 9th, the trial commenced, which 
lasted four days, and the jury, after being out two hours, re- 
turned a verdict of 'Guilty.' It was clearly proven that these 
frien had been plotting this robbery with others since July, 1875. 
They had watched Mr. Whittelsey and his family for months. 
After they entered the house, they bound the occupants to bed- 
posts, and, after an hour or two, gagged them. They were at 
the house from about twelve until four o'clock a.m., and then 
went to the bank. The burglars said that ' Mrs. Whittelsey 
was the coolest of the lot.' She attempted to assist her hus- 
band to dress after they were ordered up out of bed, but was not

Attacks by the Daltons upon the Wells, Fargo & Co.'s 
Express, Elston C. Whittlesey, No. 2107, being messenger in 
charge : 

First Attack. 

On the night of June 1, 1892, about 11 o'clock, six members of the Dalton 
gang of outlaws attacked the express and baggage car of the Wells, Fargo 
Company at Red Rock, Indian Territory, where the train had stopped for 
water. It was the same band of outlaws that subsequently made a raid upon 
a bank at Coffeeville, Kansas, and was nearly exterminated by citizens who 
came to the defense of the bank. In the affair at Red Rock, Mr. E. C. 
Whittlesey, the express messenger, had in his company as guard a young 
lad aged about 18 years. The outlaws first seized the engineer and fireman 
of the train and then demanded admittance to the express car, which was 
refused. The assailants then opened fire with revolvers upon both sides of 
the express car and also from underneath the floors. Fully two hundred 
shots were fired at the car, many of which penetrated the inside. The occu- 
pants of the cars shielded their persons behind trunks and boxes as best 
they could, and replied to the shots with their own weapons whenever they 
could determine the location of any of their adversaries. Finally, the ma- 
rauders forced the fireman to cut a hole through one of the doors, he calling 
to the messenger and guard not to shoot him as he was acting under com- 
pulsion. When a sufficient opening was made the banditti began entering 
the car, holding their prisoner in front as a shield. Finding further resist- 
ance to be useless the messenger and his aid were obliged to witness the 
spoliation of their car The safe was forced and about $400 in money stolen. 
At least $2,000 worth of property was destroyed besides what was carried 
away. The bandits were expecting to secure about $70,000 that was going 
into the Sac and Fox country for the purpose of paying Indian annuities. 
The treasure had passed through the day previous to their assault. Before 
leaving the train the robbers warned Mr. Whittlesey never to attempt resist- 
ance again as next time he would be shot down without mercy. 

Second Attack. 

About 1 o'clock, a. m, on June 10, 1893, a part of the same gang of free- 
booters made an attack upon Mr. Whittlesey's express car at Cimarron, 



WHITTLESEY GENEALOGY. 269 

Kansas, where the train halted for orders. The bandits took possession of 
the engine and express car and ran it along the track about a quarter of a 
mile to a point where their horses were tethered. The messenger was asleep, 
but was aroused from his slumber by a loud knocking and a demand for ad- 
mittance, which was refused. On this occasion Mr. Whittlesey was alone 
in his car. Upon being refused entrance the outlaws opened a volley of 
shots. Mr. Whittlesey reached for his own weapon, and as he did so a bullet 
from the attacking party struck him two inches to the left of the navel, 
ranged upward and passed out of the back, having made a furrow seven and 
and a half inches through the body. On being shot Mr. Whittlesey realized 
that he must soon surrender, so he expended what vitality he possessed in 
secreting the valuables he had in charge. There were three trunks contain- 
ing money besides two express safes. The trunks and one safe were hidden 
under other trunks and boxes so as not to be seen on casual inspection. The 
other safe, which contanied $1,000 in silver, was left in its regular place. 
When the bandits gained entrance they proceeded to demolish the safe and 
secured the silver. They found Mr. Whittlesey weltering in blood upon the 
floor. Before quitting the car one of the outlaws approached the wounded 
man and asked : 

" Are you much hurt, pard? " 

Mr. Whittlesey answered, " Yes, I guess I am done for." 
" Well, I'm downright sorry, pard. We were after money, not blood." 
With this remark he picked up the body of the wounded man and laid 
him tenderly upon the lounge, gave him a drink from the water-cooler near 
at hand and then followed his fellows into the outer darkness. 

Mr. Whittlesey remained in his car, attended by the train crew which 
soon came to his relief, until an east-bound train was met, when he was 
transferred and returned to Kansas City. News of the daring raid had been 
wired, and a detail of police was found necessary to keep back the crowd 
which was anxious to catch a glimpse of the brave express messenger. The 
wounded man was off duty for seven months. He recovered slowly. The 
company sent him to several health resorts, one of them in Mexico. Although 
working in the office of the express company, Mr. Whittlesey has never en- 
tirely recovered from the effects of his nearly fatal wound. On the occasion 
of both these assaults and robberies the passengers on the trains were unmo- 
lested.

Johir 1 ' 1 , John 90 , Joseph 26 , Joseph 5 , John 1 ), b. Oct. 5, 1826, in 
Salem, Conn.; at the age of seventeen she became self-supporting, 
teaching music in New York and also studying there, and later 
assisted her father in the management of " Music Vale Semi- 
nary " ; Dec. 18, 1 85 1, she m. *John Thomas Maginnis, b. April 
5, 1825, in Stamford, Conn., son of Edward Maginnis, a pioneer 
leather merchant of New York ; for some time foreman of New 
York Herald office and afterwards proofreader; in 1849 en ~ 
gaged in mercantile business. Mr. -Maginnis was among the 
first to respond to the call for volunteers in 1862 ; he was 
mustered in Co. E, 18th Reg't., Conn. Vol., Aug. 18, 1862, as 
2d lieutenant ; he was present at the unfortunate battle of 
Winchester, June 12-13, '63, and was one of those who spent 
nine months in Libby Prison, where he suffered from cold, 
privation, and exposure, and contracted a cough from which he 
never recovered. He received a furlough on being released. 
While he was fighting at the front, Mrs. Maginnis, an ardent 
patriot, was active at home, as women could best aid the soldiers 
and serve the cause of the Union ; restless at home, he returned 
to the front, and in the skirmish at Piedmont a minie-ball 
entered his temple, and he fell into the arms of a comrade, June 
5, 1864. He was buried on the battlefield, and in 1865 his body 
was recovered and buried in " Moss Wood Glen Cemetery at 
Music Vale." Mrs. Maginnis returned to Music Vale, for a 
number of years was vice-principal, and proved herself to be an 
able assistant, an indefatigable worker, eventually beyond her 
own strength. It was in personally nursing and carrying the 
sick that she suffered an injury causing her to be an invalid for 
twenty-five years, which she bore with a patient Christian spirit 
and fortitude. She collected in her home she called the " Little 
Red Cottage," more stuff, old and interesting, than can be found 
outside of a N. E. Historical Society, and prided herself on 
genealogical matters. Mrs. Maginnis died at Salem, Conn., 
Wednesday, Aug. 4, 1897, greatly lamented.

for some time has given himself up almost entirely to the study of 
psychical and occult sciences, and is regarded as one of the most 
eloquent scientific speakers on the rostrum, as well as a platform 
test medium and healer. Of late he has devoted his time between 
the self-culture and the psychical societies, where he has met 
with remarkable success in his lectures and tests. He is organizer 
and pastor of the latter society, and its object is soul culture, or the 
development of the higher light within. He is continually striving 
to elevate his fellow men by urging them to a nobler, higher, and 
more beautiful life, by the propagation of the divine principles, and 
to pay less attention to materiality and physical phenomena."
